What clarat taught us

We started working on our clarat project in autumn 2014. At the end of 2017, we handed clarat over to two partner organizations. Why? First, clarat refugees and clarat family were no longer aligned with our strategy. Second, we felt that the costs were disproportionate to the impact, even after over three years of implementation. In many respects, this was a useful learning experience. As such a project was largely new to us, our learning curve was extremely steep. For all the positive developments and achievements, however, there were a number of things that we would do differently next time.
