Failure Reports

EWB believes that success in development is not possible without taking risks and innovating which inevitably means failing sometimes. We also believe that its important to publicly celebrate these failures, which allows us to share the lessons more broadly and create a culture that encourages creativity and calculated risk taking. This is a culture we value within EWB, and also try to work with our partners in Africa to create in their organizations.

We are excited to be able to share these Failure Reports from our program staff and volunteers.
