General description of your work in the prevention of and the fight against corruption
Currently, the organisation focusses on raising awareness on issues such as budgets and public spending, whistleblower protection, asset declaration and conflicts of interest. HOPO organises discussion events that aim at explaining what corruption actually means, and to ensure that the community and different stakeholders take an active role in the prevention of and the fight against corruption. Special emphasis lies on the issue of whistleblowers and assuring their protection in order to encourage reporting of cases relevant to institutions and authorities. HOPO wants to make sure that duty bearers are held accountable on resource expenses to ensure transparency and accountability.
