STAND Fail Fest

On December 16th, 2015, en.v held a “Fail Fest” for organizations who participated in both the 2013/2014 and the 2015 editions of the STAND program. The event was held at NIU in Kuwait City, and had three main objectives: to get participants from the first and second editions of STAND to establish contact and initiate future collaboration; to discuss lessons learned during the implementation of STAND subgrants by focusing on our “failures” as opportunities for growth and innovation; and finally, to discuss upcoming opportunities that will be made available to STAND participants in the new year, including additional funding and capacity-building opportunities. Here is a collection of images from the event.
