Featured Video of the Week: Integrity Watch Afghanistan on Aid in Afghanistan

December 8th, 2011

Integrity Watch Afghanistan, a Task Force Allied Organization, aims to increase transparency, integrity and accountability in Afghanistan, one of the most corrupt nations in the world.

In this video, Integrity Watch Afghanistan monitors infrastructure projects in Afghanistan. They go out into the field through community monitoring to make sure that projects are done right, and aid money is well spent. At one point, they even directly confront contractors for shoddy work.

Civil society development in Afghanistan is enormously important for the future of the impoverished, war-torn nation, and this video does an excellent job of showing how concerned Afghanis and NGOs are working to build accountable institutions from the ground up.
