Reporting from Tanzania and Kenya for the Next Month

I am off tonight for Dar es Salaam as a part of a reporting trip with the International Reporting Project. I will be joining a small group of journalists to see what is happening in Tanzania on the side of agriculture. Then I am sticking around on my own to go to Kenya.

I will visit the Millennium Village Project in Sauri, One Acre Fund in Kakamega, see LifeStraws in action, see the inner workings of Innovations for Poverty Action, meet with GiveDirectly recipients and more.

My stories will appear over at Humanosphere. Also be on the lookout for some more CGI and UN Week related stories early next week. As a part of the trip I will be using social media to document and report as I go along. I will try to update this blog as best I can, but your best bet is to follow me on Twitter and read my stories here: http://www.humanosphere.org/author/tmurphy/.

Please feel free to suggest ideas. If you are based in Kenya or Tanzania, I'd love to get together while I am bouncing around from place to place. I will be in Dar, Arusha, Nairobi, Kisumu and Kakamega.
