Accountability for Change Consulting

Welcome to the home of Accountability for Change Consulting.
Accountability International has the pleasure to announce that we have now officially moved to become a hybrid NGO.

We have always done strategic advisory and consulting work with partner movements, sharing our knowledge and expertise in partnerships that paid AI for our time. We have also always used those funds to co-sponsor our emerging start-ups until funders could step in or to implement projects that we deemed worthy.

Now we will be amplifying that aspect of our work going forward. Accountability for Change will very actively be seeking consulting work, piece contracts and other development work as a means to become a fully-fledged hybrid NGO. Hybrid NGOs are becoming the norm as activists struggle to access funds for niche work that is not covered by the general funding landscape. We believe we still have much to contribute on accountability, transparency and inclusion!

Our Mission and Vision

We hold leaders accountable for their political promises and actively demand accountability for inclusion and human rights. We act as a watchdog using research, advocacy, innovative tools, ratings, accountability literacy and governance as our strategy.

Accountability for Change’s vision is a world where there is accountability for the lives, human rights and wellbeing of all persons, across all spheres of society.
