Learning from our Actions: How can we be Comfortable with Failure?

Asia CTIP Learning from Our Actions Paper

Failure provides educational moments, which, although tough and awkward to deal with at times, contributes to long-term learning and improvement of programming. From a CTIP perspective, it can contribute to the sustainability of support and services that are crucial to survivors. This paper dives deeply into this issue, analyzing and synthesizing feedback from CTIP practitioners and donors alike. Findings from this research show that many barriers exist on the side of CSOs and donors: both internal and external pressures drive CSOs to put their best foot forward, while at the same time, donor agencies face similar internal pressures.
