Sierra Project Foundation

Understanding the Root Causes

To paraphrase Ryan Bingham, the central character of the 2009 film Up in the Air, "Before you revolutionize a business, you have got to understand it". Before Sierra Project began producing these comics, we first had been a part of two service projects in Ecuador. Only after we talked with doctors and local residents did we have a clear understanding of what the problems were in different parts of the country how best to tackle them. Here you can see photos from both those trips, along with detailed recordings of each day's events.
