This paper focuses on the issues raised by negotiating access to the fieldwork setting and the process of gaining participants’ permission and trust. It also analyses the advantages and limitations of the different methods of data collection employed, which included observation, focus group interviews, and unstructured interviews, as well as household surveys and photographs taken by the researcher and the families involved in the study. Finally, the paper explores how participants’ receptivity changed over the course of the fieldwork.
