Budgets are the government’s most powerful tool for meeting the needs of its people and ending extreme poverty. Yet, in many countries around the world, information on how public money is managed is not made available and decisions are made behind closed doors. This often means budgets are skewed to benefit those at the very top. Meanwhile, critical services such as access to clean water, healthcare, and education remain underfunded or worse — public resources allocated to improve these services are underspent, wasted, or squandered.

Citizen engagement with government leaders is key to achieving change. When people – especially underrepresented communities — engage government leaders and hold them accountable for how public funds are raised and spent, it results in better outcomes for everyone. We collaborate with those who have long been denied a voice to equip them with the essential knowledge and skills they need to actively participate in the budget process and advocate for change in their communities.
