Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull have had a paper accepted in the journal Information Technologies and International Development.  The paper will appear in the spring 2013 edition, volume 9, issue 1, and is entitled ‘”Ten Seeds” How mobiles have contributed to development in women-led farming cooperatives in Lesotho’.  It is based upon empirical research with people from the Bishop Allard Vocational School in Roma about how they have achieved development, empowerment and choice since being given 10 mobiles (the “ten seeds”) in 2008.  It also argues for a qualitative and longitudinal approach to evaluation of development interventions in order to get a more complete picture.
