The work at IDinsight cuts across all levels of international development. I am humbled by the opportunity to talk to farmers and caregivers of young children in some of the most remote parts of Kenya, and translate their wishes, and aspirations for policy makers at a national and international level, giving a voice to the intended recipients of social programs. I enjoy working with a highly motivated team that pushes all actors in the social sector to critically think about what social impact really means and find innovative ways to maximize this impact. At the same time, I am inspired that the team remains grounded in the fact that what we do starts and ends with helping the poor, and it's encouraging that this is not lost in the day-to-day workings of the organization and everyone lives by this mission.
