Sue: The Kenyan prostitute building a brand

May 20, 2011

One role that many NGOs now play is to give space to the voices of people, I won’t say beneficiaries,  who are part of the communities they work in, or they projects they have created. A whole host of evaluation and reporting tools have been created which aim to ‘capture the voice’ of those on the ground, whether for reasons of fundraising, advocacy, or evaluation. The development blogosphere too has traditionally been dominated by Western voices, whether describing their experiences living abroad and working in the development sector, or critiquing the latest academic paper, or advocacy report finding.

The blogging world now has a new addition however: Sue, the Kenyan prostitute building a brand. Sue’s blog, Nairobi Nights, is a refreshing look into her realities, and her reflections, written by her, and not seen through the eyes of another blogger, another evaluation tool, or a ‘case study’ for a report.
