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.

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.
