Not all the interviews could be conducted face-to-face as partners work in different parts of the country. Some were done over email, others over the phone or Skype. Generally face-to-face conversation yields the best results so the approach had to be amended to try and counter the eventuality of not having the opportunity to ask follow-up questions, if the responses were submitted over email, for instance. Using four young writers to draw out the stories told by different voices provided diverse perspectives. It was also interesting for the writers to learn about partner organisations that lend a hand to struggling and vulnerable communities.
