#YALIUnites for Transparency and Good Governance


Transparency and good governance are fundamental to society and impact everything from management of resources to economic growth to trust in government. As a result, a lack of transparency can prevent a community and country from reaching their full potential. That is why for the next few months the YALI Network is uniting for transparency and good governance through #YALIUnites.

#YALIUnites is an initiative to raise awareness about the social, economic and political benefits of transparency. The campaign will examine the concept of corruption and ways that individuals can identify and create ways to eliminate it.

Every action you take, big or small, can make a difference in your society because accountability starts with you.

There are many ways to participate in #YALIUnites:

Accountability starts with you! Take the pledge to be transparent and accountable in your daily life. Once you complete you pledge you will receive a personalized pledge badge to share on social media.
