Strengthening Capacities of Duty Bearers and Empowering Rural Women and Children Against Gender-Based ViolenceTHEME(S): Gender; Youth Empowerment
GRANT AMOUNT: $29,931

The objective of this sub-project was to reduce incidence of Gender-Based Violence in the Province of Agusan del Norte by strengthening capacities of “duty bearers” and empowering women and children “rights holders”. The high rate of gender based violence is due the low prioritization of the issue by the local government agencies; and due to the lack knowledge, skills and attitude on gender sensitivity, leadership, advocacy, planning, budgeting and monitoring and human rights laws (esp. gender-related laws) among women, men and children rights holders, duty bearers and moral bearers. The key approach adopted by the sub-project is the institutionalization of Community-Based Support System (CBSS) that will help prevent and address gender-based violence through capacity enhancement and mobilization of communities (Rights Holders) and support groups (Duty and Moral Bearers).

Youth Highlighting Corruption Using TechnologyTHEME(S): Education
GRANT AMOUNT: $32,000

The ‘Vijana Tumulike Ufisadi’ project sought to promote Kenyan youth taking action against petty corruption, particularly in the fund management under the education sector. Using the established Anti-Corruption Coalitions, we monitored the management of public funds budgeted for educational purposes and gauged the level of petty corruption existing in these processes. The SMS Interface Platform was used as the primary tool for collection of data and transmission of relevant information. Thus through the project, we believe that young people’s right to access to education was be safeguarded and the global aim of eradicating petty corruption was be promoted. The project was implemented in the three counties already specified: Nairobi County (Pumwani and Kibera areas), Isiolo County and Siaya County, through four established anti-corruption coalitions namely Nairobi North Anti-Corruption Coalition, Kibera Anti-Corruption Coalition Network, Siaya Anti-Corruption Coalition and Isiolo Social Audit Group. In view of the above, the Youth Agenda aimed to reach the overall objective of ensuring that Kenyan youth take action against petty corruption in the education sector, through technology (ICT). The specific objectives included: To change youth attitude towards petty corruption in the education sector by promoting youth ownership in the fight against corruption; To promote the use of technological innovations (including SMS and Social Media) as avenues of fighting against petty corruption; To establish a framework for strategic partnerships between the youth and the public sector.

They also created more project management groups, monitored the school management committees, created a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics. A website was designed as well. Among the activities accomplished were training workshops for School Management Board Members, monitoring a survey done on collecting data about corruption, public meeting to present the code of ethics and more.

GRANT AMOUNT: $35,000

Promoted citizen involvement in the municipal budgets of Buéa and Tiko. Enhancing transparency and probity was the starting point but this evolved to a participatory budgeting element. The mayors agreed to allow ASYOUSED to work with the local communities to draw up their priorities for the allocation of a portion of the budgets. For example, one village of Buéa had suffered a recent cholera epidemic and their top priority was a proper water supply with a protected connection to the local spring. ASYOUSED has good rapport with the mayors and councilors (who appreciate the guidance and training they have provided) as well as the communities and it appears that the councils have actually implemented the priorities selected by the communities.

GRANT AMOUNT: $30,000

Corruption in public procurement is the major social problem causing massive loss and wastage of public resources thus underdevelopment. Lack of effective citizens’ participation and intervention to make timely check on this problem is majorly caused by lack of transparency, the ignorance of linkages between public office functions and citizens roles in management of the public resources, capacity and information gaps. The project aimed at developing a universally acceptable model policy to formalize citizen’s participation in NAADs procurement planning and budgeting process in Bubaare and Vurra Sub Counties.

GRANT AMOUNT: $40,000

PTF’s sole partner, CIPPEC, is a highly professional and effective think tank. Only one of its three projects with PTF has been GTF-financed, but this builds on the strong foundations of the two previous projects. PTF accounts for less than 1% of its income, however CIPPEC emphasizes that its relations with PTF have helped it become accepted as an expert practitioner (not just academic commentator) on governance issues in Argentina. Most aspects of government in Argentina are highly decentralized to the province level, including running of elections, which are widely seen as suffering from corruption and political favouritism towards the ruling party, with very weak or ambiguous laws on political party financing and lobbying. Hence the GTF financed project is particularly relevant in monitoring campaign finance in the 2011 election and helping the province of Santa Fe (the third largest province) adopt a Single Ballot innovation, based on the Australian electoral system. This has been highly effective and other provinces are seeking to replicate it in future." From 2013 DfID GTF John Clark Evaluation

Overall the project aimed to collect relevant data in order to develop advocacy campaigns promoting sub-national governance reforms. That would also mean enhancing the capacity of country-specific groups to advocate for increased government accountability and advancing good governance agenda through implementation of specific reform initiatives. "The Global Integrity survey was also run in Ecuador by Grupo Faro; again PTF co-financed this. The survey was done well and helped establish GF as a specialist in local governance and to open dialogue with some municipalities, resulting in 5 MOUs for future collaboration on transparency, budget, and service accountability. Unfortunately the funding envisaged from Inter-American Bank for this did not come through, but a follow-up DGF-funded PTF grant has helped GF pick up some of this, particularly regarding enhancing public access to information. The survey was well-covered by the press and has been discussed twice by the Quito Municipality." From 2013 DfID GTF John Clark Evaluation

Abra Water and Irrigation Systems WatchTHEME(S): Water and Sanitation, Infrastructure
GRANT AMOUNT: $24,775

They established the Abra Water and Irrigation Systems (AWIS) Watch Project utilizing a PTF grant. The monitoring of the construction of a road was initiated as part of that project. Workers on the road were insisting that they had used more cement in the concrete mixture of the road than observers counted, and the workers refused to allow the monitoring committee to count the empty cement bags to confirm. The monitors noted the consistency of the cement and later witnessed that as an end result, the road developed serious cracks. The CCAGG brought in government expert investigators who bored several holes in the road to test the composition of the cement. The organization persuaded the Department of Public Works and Housing to establish a process for sanctions when work was completed at sub-par levels. While the contractor pleaded with CCAGG to withdraw their complaint, the CCAGG pressed forward. The tests found that the concrete mix failed to pass regulation in compressive strength by large margins, and that the cracks could indeed be attributed to the poor-quality concrete. They also found that the workers had cut corners on almost every aspect of the construction and determined that the contractor should replace the entire section of road at his own expense. A material engineer would be required to monitor the concrete mixture, and then write up the deficiencies of the project still remaining after the observation period. The project contractor eventually resigned, and the monitoring and accountability measures established during this project remained in place to prevent any further abuses.

Building Citizen Monitoring System on Budget Expenditure Accountability in Education SectorTHEME(S): Education
GRANT AMOUNT: $25,000

Project Goal - To improve active participation of society significantly in BOS fund management monitoring to encourage education budget efficiency at school level. Project Objectives - 1. The fund abuses are identified and monitoring model is developed to push the improvement based on these findings. 2. Improved participation capacity of community organizations in education fund management monitoring. 3. Improved participation capacity of community organizations in revealing various violations of education fund management at school level. "Corruption in the education sector in Indonesia is becoming a more pressing issue given the substantial increase in public funds channeled into this sector, after the national constitution mandated an education budget of - at least - 20 percent of the national budget, starting from 2009. However, corruption and inefficiency in the education sector are significant and anti-corruption initiatives are few. Despite the increasing budget allocation for the education sector, students do not achieve desirable results; dropout rates and effective costs to students are high. This project focused on developing a monitoring mechanism and empowering community groups to monitor special government funds expenditures in West Bandung Regency. The project successfully developed a monitoring model to identify misuse of funds and sources of corruption and enhanced the capacity of local citizen groups in the region to better monitor education expenditures."

In pursuit of these goals TI-Costa Rica undertook a pilot study in three vulnerable conservation areas - Osa, Huetar Norte and Tortuguero. An important benefit achieved was a training for citizens and officials introducing them to risk mapping as an effective instrument in fighting corruption.

Combatting Corruption in the Electoral Process (PORIS)THEME(S): Elections
GRANT AMOUNT: $22,000

The African International Group of Political Risk Analysis (PORIS) received funding from PTF to conduct field-based studies into the perception and existence of corruption in the electoral process of Tanzania. Even though Tanzania transitioned from a one-party to a multi-party state, the same group maintains the large majority of financial resources and political influence, holding 80-90% of Parliamentary seats. Due to the transition to a multi-party system, competition has increased, dramatically increasing the money needed for a political campaign, favoring the party in power, which has the support of the business sector. Through interviews and focus group discussions, citizens revealed how the ruling party uses bribes and intimidation in elections, and how there exists wide-ranging corruption in the political system.
