Description

The Platform to Protect Whistleblowers in Africa (PPLAAF) is an NGO based in France, Senegal, and South Africa, staffed by experienced lawyers and journalists who offer legal services and advice to whistleblowers  seeking to share information  about issues in the public interest. PPLAAF supports whistleblowers  whose disclosures  speak to the public interest of African citizens and ensure they have a greater impact.


Since its creation in 2017, PPLAAF has supported dozens of whistleblowers from CEOs to security personnel, bankers, and civil servants. PPLAAF   has   relocated   families   and provided asylum for them, conducted risk assessments, worked with governments and law enforcement officials, created international investigative collaborations, and constructed lawsuits for NGOs. PPLAAF’s work permitted the   disclosure   of   large-scale  economic crimes such as those depicted in the Luanda Leaks, the Lumumba papers, or the Congo Hold-Up investigations.


Climate Whistleblowers is an NGO based in Paris that protects individuals who expose wrongdoings that worsen the climate crisis and help them have a greater impact. It means providing support in terms of security, legal proceedings,  as well as investigations  and working with media to produce impactful reports, articles, or videos.


CW was created in 2023, benefiting from the expertise and part of the resources of PPLAAF to launch its activities.
