Kenya

Can an app help stop corruption? In the project “Action for Transparency” an app plays an important role in making it possible for citizens to report suspected corruption. This can indeed be a way to ensure that money for primary schools and health care centers for the inhabitants of Nairobi, Kenya, are not lost on the way.

To speak out and report about corruption can be dangerous in Kenya – even though corruption is viewed as one of the major problems this country faces. In addition, the lack of access to information about the disbursement of public funds makes it practically impossible to follow the money, especially by citizens. This makes public funds very vulnerable to corruption and misuse.
