Good Evidence’s research team is hard at work interviewing CIs from Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru. This process is so important to our organization, as it is the basis for our decision of which CIs to work with. One of our researcher’s Donovan Ritch was nice enough to share his experience of interviewing:
“The process of interviewing so far for me has followed a more or less similar pattern. Prior to making the call for each interview, I seem to almost always get struck with a wave of irrational anxiety over all the remote imagined ways in which things could go wrong. It follows from this point almost invariably, however, that things go well, and I always seem to be taken aback (although I don’t know why I should be) at the openness and sincerity that members of these community initiatives convey to me in their responses to my questions. The best part of the process is the feeling of satisfaction that comes afterward from having been offered a brief window into the world of these pathbreaking individuals, which inevitably makes me want to see them succeed in their efforts. While we won’t in the end be able to work with all of these initiatives, it’s definitely been a pleasure just to have become aware of all the positive progress that is being made throughout the Andean region of South America”.
We cannot wait to share with you which CIs we will be filming for, it won’t be long until we know!
