Learnings and Updates
We believe that we learn as much from best practices as we learn from things that unintentionally went wrong. A part of the Skybird Programme is to actively share our learnings with the wider WASH community so we can mutally learn and exchange our experiences to inform future projects. In this section you will find our learnings as well as updates concerning the Skybird Programme and its Micro-Projects.
