To end poverty, you have to end corruption

Hera are the four (4) reasons

First, our research shows corruption is an impediment to meeting essential global development milestones for health, education and access to water and sanitation. When corruption is tackled, people lead better lives.

Second, governance can and is being measured. It is now possible to report bribes paid in real time and measure levels of public sector corruption. We can also assess public access to information – a key indicator of how people can hold their governments to account and follow the money.

Third, people are demanding better governance as a pre-requisite for better development. More than three million people globally told the UN that “an honest and responsive government” is among their top four development priorities they want to see in the future.

Fourth, governance and fighting corruption is about people and results, not ideologies. There has been a real, positive shift in seeing governance as a renewed compact between people and those who they elect. Governments are being called on to be more open, accountable and responsive to individual and community needs.

Marikina informal sectors mag-oorganisa

Marikina City, July 6, 2014- Isang grupo ng mga street vendors, self employed na taga-Marikina ang lumapit sa C2G2 para sila ay tulungan sa pag-oorganisa.

Ang mga dumalo ay naghain ng kanilang mga saloobin sa kanilang mga nararasan sa buhay. Ayon sa kanila, bakit silang mga nagsusumikap sa kanilang mga sarili ay napagkakaitan ng karapatang mabuhay ng marangal sa kanilang pagsisikap.

Parang hindi kami kabilang at taga-Marikina sa aming nararanasan na trato mula sa ating gobyerno, ang tinurang ng isang dumalo.

Gusto naming magsama-sama at magtulungan kung kami ay walang maaasahan sa ating pamahalaan, sabi ng isang pahayag.

Dahil dito, ang C2G2 ay nakahandang tumulong sa kanilang mga nais na isagawa. Ang pulong para sa opisyal na pagkakabuo ng Samahan ay gaganapin din sa buwang kasalukuyan, pagkatapos ihanda ang mga kinakailangang mga dokumento sa pagtatayo ng Samahan. .
