The Asian Trends Monitoring Team is ready to go to Hanoi. From Friday, May 18th, to Thursday, May 24th, Taufik and Johannes will visit organisations working with and for Hanoi’s poor. We will talk to people in slums, on the street and to NGO workers in order to find out more about how people overcome the challenges of being poor in a bustling city.
To support our qualitative research with some more data, we are also conducting a survey among the poor in Hanoi. We aim to collect responses from about 350 respondents, the same sample size we had reached in Jakarta and Manila. You are already curious about the results? Read more about our survey results in recent blog posts about saving’s strategies,access to credit, and Jakarta’s water supply. Also check out this video about street fights in Jakarta’s slums.
Moreover, in about a week or so we will release our next ATM Bulletin on Jakarta’s poor with detailed information about our field trip to Jakarta. So stay tuned for the release.
In the meanwhile, we will try to post regular updates about our experiences in Hanoi, so make sure you check the blog for updates throughout the next week or simply Like us on facebook to automatically see our updates in your newsfeed.
