Make Aid Transparent Petition

I just signed this petition on aid transparency. Aid is really important – when spent well it saves lives, puts kids into school and promotes long-term development.

But right now no one knows exactly how aid money is spent, where or on what. In most cases, not even governments receiving aid have a full picture of where all the money goes. This makes aid less effective.

If a lot of us sign this petition then donors will have to keep their promises to make aid more transparent – which will help millions of people round the world to benefit from better aid and hold their governments to account.

Sign here: http://www.makeaidtransparent.org/

The Make Aid Transparent campaign is a coalition of civil society organisations who have come together to call on donors to publish more and better information about the aid they give.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
