We collaborate with marginalized communities to actively exercise their role as watchdog and hold various leaders accountable. We do this by enabling increased transparency, promoting dialogue and supporting action as catalysts for increased accountability.

Social impact Statement
We pride ourselves with the development of scorecards and we have since 2008 we have developed 11 scorecards which are used as advocacy today by our partners. The scorecards include scorecard on women, scorecard on LGBTI, scorecard on MSM health, scorecard on child marriage and many more. We have also in partnership with the South African Trans Forum developed a Trans Situation analysis in the 10 South African countries. We have also trained and helped develop youth scorecards in Zimbabwe and Liberia also training them on accountability literacy. We will currently be working with youths from Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Kenya on Youth SRHR scorecard.
