Social entrepreneurs against corruption

Social entrepreneurs against corruption

With their innovative ideas and leadership, social entrepreneurs can help tackle some of the key challenges of today and offer sustainable solutions for tomorrow. Our friends at the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) run a social entrepreneurs initiative that is providing grants to allow them to do just that. Here are two stories showing how these individuals are turning big ideas into big change:

Buying a new home is a stressful process. In Moldova, however, an additional concern has buyers worried – the threat that the building construction company will disappear, taking their life savings with them.

In Romania, a disconnect between citizens and the budgetary process has resulted in a lack of citizens’ participation and budgets that do not reflect their needs. But the ‘Funky Citizens’ are fighting back.

There are many more like this happening across the world: Egyptian healthcare, Liberian schools and US citizen participation are just some of the other themes of IACC social entrepreneur projects currently underway.

Join the 16th IACC in Malaysia this September to be part of the global anti-corruption community. Bringing together activists, entrepreneurs, NGOs, governments and business, the conference takes place from 2 to 4 September under the theme “Ending Impunity: People, Integrity, Action.”

Right to information: knowledge is power

The right to information is vital for preventing corruption. When citizens can access key facts and data from governments, it is more difficult to hide abuses of power and other illegal activities - governments can be held accountable.
