What Went Wrong? is a participatory journalism project seeking to bring the voices of aid recipients to the forefront of the global discussion on foreign aid. Through text message and social media submissions, citizens across Africa will be able to report on how aid work is affecting their own communities. The information they provide will appear on a map-based interface and will be redirected in social media posts toward any NGOs involved. This reporting will broaden the public discourse on foreign aid, cultivate a more nuanced understanding of the human ramifications of failed projects, and increase transparency and accountability over time.
