We are two friends, from very different parts of the world, and MSc in International Development
We met in 2018, while we were studying a MSc in International Development at The University of Manchester, in the UK. After finishing our studies, our curiosity and desire to keep discussing issues related to development, but from a less academic perspective, gave us the motivation to start this blog. Enjoy it!
