General description of your work in the prevention of and the fight against corruption

Corruption weakens institutions, criminalizes individuals and undermines social solidarity. Our primary objective, therefore, is to encourage and enable active public participation in combatting corruption by reporting experiences of corruption in Malawi.

The Centre for Democracy and Development believes that by shining a light on corruption and those who act corruptly, we promote transparency and accountability and protect the beneficiaries of public goods and services.

Each act of corruption prevented by our citizens underpins and fortifies civil society and thereby enhances democracy, the rule of law and the establishment of a more caring and just society.
