Five-day training began on May Day (May 1) in Kathmandu for the field researchers.

As part of our work with World Bank we’re conducting qualitative research among various ethnic groups in the terai and far west (mountain region) of Nepal.

More details to follow about the program….but the build up to the training has been both exciting and intense….Sumi Devkota is Another Option’s program manager in Nepal and we’re partnering with Right Direction Nepal (RDN) a full-service research firm in Kathmandu led by Nischal Basnet.

And they’ve been terrific.

Five-days of training seems steep doesn’t it…?

But two-days of classroom on the subject matter (content) and behavior change and qualitative then to the field to pre-test, modify and finalize the instruments.

Boom….five days are done.

Out in the field next week…more pictures and anecdotes as this activity unfolds.

Thanks to all for making this happen
