I am traveling to Pakistan and Norway in October and November to do fieldwork and interviews for my Masters thesis, which I hope to present in January. I will be researching the relationship between three organizations ( two in Norway and one in Pakistan) partnering with a community development program based in Pakistan.

My research centers on how gender equality policies effect (or don't!) practices in development projects. How do different partners understand what it means to live as men and women ? Who gets to decide what the best practices are? What is gender equality, and why is it an issue in development?

To get this done, I need:

- plane tickets to Pakistan €960 + €100 cancellation fees
- plane tickets to Norway €140
- a dictaphone for interviews €127

This is the last step toward getting my Masters, and I desperately need your help!

*Any extra money raised will be donated to the development organization in Pakistan. I have worked with them for the last 6 years as a consultant and they are making an incredibly positive impact on the lives of the people they work. The organization works with minority Hindus and Christians in the area, and assists with micro-finance, vocational training, health and hygiene training, human rights awareness raising, and literacy.

Thank you for your help!
