It is the citizen who pays the price, as demonstrated by the recent multiplication of scandals reported in the media.
Corruption is a global plague and governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, the media and citizens around the world are joining forces to fight this crime. Similarly, corruption is endemic in Afghanistan and therefore, as a member of the United Nations Global Compact, TACT is committed to supporting the Global Compact Ten Principles with respect to human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.
TACT’s strategy for the years to come focuses on:
- Engaging with people, particularly the youth, more widely than ever before - for ultimately only people can stop corruption
- Speaking out more boldly about corruption Working more closely with our coalition partners and the media to this end
- Using our influence to exercise more pressure on political decision makers to implement anti-corruption reforms
TACT recently finished a major project in partnership with Democracy International | USAID and other organizations: to track the effective implementation of the Afghan National Unity Government (NUG) promises made during the presidential election process by the elected government.
