Read this e-book to end poverty

It’s our 6th birthday! (Well, it was last week – on 14th May to be precise – but we have a history of forgetting our own birthday here at WhyDev, so we’re just sticking to tradition).

To celebrate, we thought we’d share something really special with you – our first ever e-book!

“Getting Development Right: Fresh and Frank Voices in Ending Poverty” is a collection of some of our most thought-provoking blog posts, all neatly encased together in an electronic format ready for your contemplation.

The e-book includes a range of posts – questioning development practice, reflecting on personal experiences and proposing alternative ways of thinking. It features topics such as mental health and diversity in aid work. One author attempts to deconstruct the notion of the ever-elusive ‘field’. As well as offering some decent doses of myth-busting and useful advice, crucially, each article reflects what we’re fundamentally all about – by focusing on the question, ‘why?’

As always, we’d love to hear your comments (below), and feedback about the e-book, so do let us know what you think. Join the conversation!

Perhaps you’d like to go further and try your hand at writing a blog post for WhyDev? Do get in touch. We’re always looking for more fresh and frank voices in development!
