June 18: Welcome Committee

After our initial meeting with the camp residents we were unsure of the future of the project. I believe we crushed some of the hopes that the camp leaders had in mind. However, we put worries aside for our first day of physical work on the outhouse.  As June18 was our first official visit with all the residents we were looking forward to meeting all of the members of Hope Camp.  We didn't expect what they had planned…See More

June 11 - 14, 2013: Logistics, trials, and tribulations. oh my.I arrived in Kenya a few days before the NWC members to arrange for various bits of logistics. This included hotel arrangements, material delivery to the camp, rental car issues, and beginning work at the camp. It was these few days that I learned quite a bit about working in development.I had met several people involved in the bottles project last summer during my fellowship so familiar faces were welcoming.

June 10, 2013: Going Back

Last summer I and a colleague visited a camp of internally displaced peoples (IDP) from the 2007/2008 post-election violence. We were staying in Kenya for the summer of 2012 on a fellowship from Georgetown University. The camp is called Hope Camp and rests close to the town of Ndaragwa in Central Province, Kenya. Please read “Scattered” for a detailed introduction to the camp.After visiting, I was determined to do what I could which was simply tell their story. My second year at graduate school…See More

June 15 - 16, 2013: Renting Cars in Nakuru

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 4:09pm 0 Comments

Last summer my colleague and I had our fair share of issues with renting cars in a town called Nakuru, located in the Rift Valley. Our summer blog (georgetowninnairobi.wordpress.com) was a part of our fellowship and had the requirements of remaining academic, thus many comedic and/or trying events were left out (This included a time of when I got tied up by a sheep, but that is a story for another day). Our experience renting cars in Nakuru last summer did not go well. One car…

June 17th, 2013: A Hard Conversation

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

With the NWC members safely in Kenya, we could really get to work. One of our goals was to effectively and clearly communicate with the leadership of Hope Camp as well as the residents of the project’s goals, any future projects, the true needs of the camp, and what was expected of the residents themselves. Many meetings occupied our first visit to the camp. They took place in a small shed that functions as the office of the Camp’s chairman’s.…

Hi Deborah, you are looking to collect resource guides? Themes that are of particular interest to me are children and youth in peacebuilding, infrastructure for peace, and more generally if you can find operational guidance notes for peace-related work then I'm very much looking forward to your research :). Nice to meet you and good luck in whatever your endeavours. Corina

Hey Deborah, my advice is  similar to Go's. Try to find a niche. Take a Monitoring and Evaluation class if you can! Make sure you get an internship or two under your belt. Go abroad during the summer. Virginia is cheaper than DC. Grad school is not like undergrad (at least it wasn't for me... in that not all of your bffs live in one place). Feel free to email me at sarah.jackson9@gmail.com or call my cell: 7175145041 and I'd be happy to chat more. Cheers, Sarah

Hi Deborah. Congrats on being admitted to the program. My advise is to really map out what you want to achieve in grad school. Think about courses, jobs, etc. that will prepare you for life after Georgetown. Best wishes.

Hey congrats on getting in :o) Hmm advice? That's a very open-ended question... do you have any specific questions?
