Peter Little and Mark Risjord received a “Happiness and Well-being” Grant from the John Templeton Foundation. The Emory team’s project, which also includes economist Workneh Negatu of Addis Ababa University, will study two specific low-income communities: South Wollo, Ethiopia, and Baringo, Kenya.

“The idea is to compare the subjective meaning of the good life and see if that affects the relationship between material well-being and reports of happiness and overall well-being,” says Dr. Little.
