Governments and institutions have the power to fight poverty; but sometimes they reinforce it instead. By empowering communities and helping people to organize, those in power can be held to account, and made to govern for the benefit of the people. In communities we support citizens to organize. We insist that local government and NGO’s adhere to high standards in service provision and they expose corruption when they find it. This work transforms the lives of people who have never before had a say in the decisions made on their behalf.
