Our Stories of Change aim to give readers and practitioners a glimpse into the experiences of those who have used Practical Action’s information and services to help them in their projects.
The stories provide an ideal opportunity for other practitioners working in the area to see first-hand the lessons learned, and to pass on and use this knowledge appropriately.
You can Share your Experience here, and tell others about how your project went, what were the successes and failures, the rewards and challenges, and the lessons you would pass on to others.
