Partnership for Transparency
The Partnership for Transparency (PTF) was established in 2000 with the goal of helping citizens to fight corruption and meet citizen demand for good governance. At PTF we believe that improved governance – greater accountability, responsiveness to citizens and transparent public activities – is critical to achieving participatory governance and improved development outcomes. PTF envisions societies where citizens succeed in making their government free of corruption.
Civil society has an important role to play in the development of anti-corruption and good governance programs. Through technical support, PTF empowers Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to play an effective role in the design, implementation and monitoring of anti-corruption activities.
PTF views CSOs as important innovators, agenda setters, mobilizers, and monitors in achieving this vision. Our goal is to work with CSOs to pilot new mechanisms and approaches to improve transparency and accountability of public agencies. PTF supports projects that give voice to civil society, demonstrate the value of constructive partnerships between government and civil society, and result in capacity building through action learning.
