Our Rising Tide project goes from strength to strength. Working with communities, partners and our research team our data collection phase has been very successful. Our project themes “Women’s Empowerment” “Entrepreneurial Freedom” “Health and Well-Being” and “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene” have all been informed by our empirical data gathering. Entering into our third year, we are focusing on producing peer reviewed journal articles, podcasts, radio programmes, films, animations, policy papers, and education content. Our first paper published in the BMJ Open sets out findings from our household survey. In neighbourhoods where there is a sense of belonging, satisfaction with life and freedom of choice a communities subjective well-being is significantly enhanced.
