In French, Pas a Pas means ‘step by step’; a reflection on both my entry into the development sector, and the work being done more widely.

I originally set up this blog when I moved to West Africa (first Senegal, then Mali), as a means to reflect upon my time there, as a way to stay in touch with family and friends, but also as a way to push myself to think and engage more critically with the topics and issues that working in development inevitably raises.
