In South Asia, most PTF endeavors were part of a larger strategy funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). The umbrella program, Citizens Against Corruption (CAC), primarily targeted India, although some projects were funded in Nepal and Sri Lanka.

With focus on a citizen-led approach, the program funded 14 CSOs across four Indian states whose projects covered more than 1,000 villages and close to 90,000 households. These projects ranged from monitoring corruption in the public health sector, educating communities on applying for entitlements, and obtaining work and ration cards.

In May 2016, PTF helped establish an affiliate in India – Partners for Transparency India – to better respond to the needs of our South Asia partners.
