What They Do
At Integrity Action their focus is on building a culture of integrity by supporting citizens and organisations to develop effective systems that promote integrity.
Community Integrity Building
Community integrity building involves learning about the community’s needs and service delivery problems, supporting citizens and local government to make integrity work. They assist citizens and local government to work in collaboration with each other to formulate and implement practical solutions, and ongoing monitoring of service delivery.
Integrity Education Network
Through their Integrity Leadership Courses they offer world-class integrity courses, seminars and workshop in English, French and Arabic to professionals and educators in academia, government, civil society, and business. In addition, they partner with universities and training institutes supporting them to develop and deliver locally-contextualised integrity education. They therefore convene curriculum development workshops, where they share with participants creative, interactive and experiential teaching methods. These training sessions have evolved into global venues for policy makers, donors, academics and practitioners to interact, share knowledge and experiences, and motivate each other to spearhead integrity in their work situations.See more
