Our mission

To support citizen-led movements for government transparency and accountability in Africa

PTF-Africa is a newly established affiliate of the Partnership for Transparency (PTF) based in Washington, DC. PTF and its global affiliates give civil society leaders the resources they need to catalyze successful citizen-led change in communities suffering from corruption and the abuse of power.

Gender-Based Violence & the Rule of Law in South Africa

South Africa has extremely high levels of domestic violence, sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV). The problem is compounded by a lack of faith in the criminal justice system, which leaves many survivors with no legal protection or recourse, despite living in a country with arguably the most progressive public policies concerning GBV on the continent. We’re working with community groups in South Africa to increase access to justice and improve programs for survivors.
