Global Affiliates

Recognizing the importance of physical presence in the regions in which we work and where our potential partners reside, PTF has established four affiliates: PTF Europe, based in Germany, PTF Asia, based in the Philippines, PTF India, and PTF Africa, based in South Africa.

Citizens Against Corruption draws on over 200 case studies that describe impressive initiatives undertaken over the past decade by 130 CSOs in 53 countries which engage directly with public agencies to stop the extortion that damages peoples’ lives and obstructs progress.

The Report details the results and lessons of decade-long (2003-2013) PTF support to Filipino CSOs to fight corruption. It celebrates the successes and reflects on challenges faced as PTF enters a new phase in the Philippines – a regional affiliate called PTF Asia in Manila.

The study focuses on the World Bank’s recent “Governance and Anti-Corruption” (GAC) policies. It makes eight strategic recommendations, which can be put in place as part of the operational guidelines and funding and management arrangements for Phase 2 of the GAC Strategy.
