Africa RISING coordinator in Ethiopia Peter Thorne reflects on his recent visit to project research sites alongside an external review team.

It is some time since I have been able to visit our field sites in Ethiopia. The Christmas break and our visits to India and California seem to have taken out most of 2015 so far. So, it has been really interesting for me to join our internally-commissioned, external review team during their fact-finding tours of the Lemo and Endamehoni sites.

Leaving the review aside for the moment, I was really struck by the ways in which our activities have accelerated over the past six months. There is a real buzz of activity at both sites (and, I am sure in Sinana and Basona Werana too).
