In Peru, local-level corruption hurts many people. Meanwhile, surveys by our Peruvian chapter, Proética, reveal that people are afraid to report corruption through official channels.
In this context, journalists and the media are particularly critical to uncovering individual cases of corruption and pushing for concrete change.
Since September 2012, Proética has been exposing local corruption cases each week via its online TV programme, Poder Ciudadano (Citizen Power).
And so far, the results have been fantastic: authorities respond much more quickly when corrupt behaviour is made public on film.
To broaden the base of journalists, expose more cases of corruption and help more victims fight back, Proética is looking for support on the crowdfunding site indiegogo. See how you can help.
