Abstract

This book captures the experiences and voices of over 6,000 people who have received international assistance, observed the effects of aid efforts, or been involvedin providing aid. Over time, across very different contexts and continents, people’sexperiences with international aid efforts have been remarkably consistent. While there was a wide range of opinions on specifics, the authors were struck by the similarity in people’s descriptions of their interactions with the international aidsystem. Their stories are powerful and full of lessons for those who care enough to listen and to hear the ways that people on the receiving side of aid suggest it can become more effective and accountable.
