Hi Yiyi,

I agree with Ian, it is usually easiest to go with local organisations

It also depends on the type of study you want to do; if it is a survey you may want to reach a broad audience, but if it is more case study or observation you definitely should try to local organisations first.  

You can also try snowballing; if you do a first pilot interview with one person, you can ask him/her to give you names of a few friends, and then do another round of data collection with them, and then ask them for their friends …
