This collection of case studies from social accountability projects supported through DFID’s PPA funding mechanism leverage World Vision’s strong grassroots presence and partnerships with poor and vulnerable communities to foster empowerment. Through dialogue and partnerships with local and national governments, as well as other key stakeholders, these projects have contributed towards strengthened service delivery systems and structures; increased access and quality of social services; built the capacity and effectiveness of service providers and other significant development actors; and strengthened vertical linkages
between citizens, CSOs, and governments by collecting, analysing, and providing evidence to influence policy, planning, budgeting and service delivery practice.
These social accountability projects engage youth, people with disabilities, women, men, traditional leaders, and CSOs for collaborative action in multiple contexts. They are changing lives.
