Thanks for the compliment & I got to say the same for you too :)
I'll update my profile as soon as I get some time. Very briefly about me, I am pursuing my PhD on the subject of understanding the women's perception about displacement as faced by them. Currently i'm travelling to-and-fro for my fieldwork/data collection in Rajasthan.
Besties to you & all the other group members! Lets keep doing the good work! :)
Hi Rituu! Thanks for informing me about the Horticultural Program (CRSP). I would have loved to prepare a proposal since I am well informed about the Uganda agricultural sector. However, I am situated in Ottawa and it seems like I would need to be located in a country of focus to prepare an RFP with a local host organization. Perhaps I can get more information from someone at Trellis Fund since I would love to work on such a project!!
Thanks for adding me Rituu. I look forward to discussion on such a needed area: gender in evaluation. I hope that gender in development will not be seen only as a cross-cutting issue/soft issue but rather as a central determinant to human development.
As for the cultural norm of FGM, how can programmers convince a population that their cultural practice is not acceptable or humane without it feeling like an imposition of external values?
