Short description:
Helping civil society play an effective role in the design, implementation and monitoring of national anti-corruption programs. The basic premise for creating PTF is that the civil society has an important role to play in the development of anti-corruption and good governance programs, and it can play this role more effectively if it is independent, financially, from government or direct bilateral or multilateral funding. PTF finances specific discrete time-bound activities or projects initiated by civil society organizations aimed at fighting corruption. Such activities will often involve mobilizing individuals, called "partners," with specialized knowledge in the design and delivery of anti-corruption measures. These may be nationals or international specialists and most often are volunteers working "pro bono". Where a government, bilateral or multilateral agency is seeking the involvement of the civil society in the development of such programs, the PTF can assist the civil society organization concerned to have its own independent voice. Where appropriate PTF will help identify and sponsor partners to participate in these efforts and fund them, as one civil society organization assisting another as a way to ensure that the voice of civil society remains independent.
PTF e.V. is the European affiliate of Partnership for Transparency Fund based in Munich/Germany. Mr. Franz Kaps is currently the Chairman of the PTF e.V - European affiliate.
