Learning from our charitable mistakes

With donor money tighter than ever, aid groups have to make sure the donations they receive are spent effectively. Admittingfailure.com is a new website that allows aid groups and charitable organisations to share their mistakes with others to make sure their failures aren't repeated. Carmel Kilkenny talks to Ian Smillie, a development consultant whose work with the group Engineers Without Borders Canada sparked the idea for Admittingfailure.com. Carmel also speaks with Scott Gilmore, the executive director of Peace Dividend Trust a non-profit group that makes humanitarian initiatives more efficient and equitable by learning from past failures and building on their successes.
