What does Integrity Action mean to me?

"The impact of aid money is notoriously difficult to measure and easy to 'fudge', Integrity Action provides a tool that helps overcome this, which leads to a virtuous circle of more donor confidence and therefore more donations. Corruption occurs when the powerful have power over the powerless; compounded when there is secrecy. DevelopmentCheck is a great leveler, providing transparency as well as transferring power into the hands of the powerless.

Sustainability comes from education, and educating the local communities and especially the youth as to what is rightfully theirs, empowering them to question and to hold officials to account. Partnering: Integrity Action is not about 'doing to' but 'working with'" - December 2015
