2019 was a particularly busy year for AL Nepal as they crowned their latest set of Integrity Icons at a ceremony in Kathmandu following a successful national campaign involving 75 districts and 500 volunteers, who collected over 1,000 nominations. They continued to support the work of their previous Icons and expand the reach of our vision of integrity through the Integrity School, Fellowship and the Summits we hosted across the country.
Their Civic Action Teams (formerly Citizen Helpdesks) are turning into a movement through which 500+ open government champions have joined them to close the feedback loop between citizens and local authorities, and to address critical issues in communities. They also continued to support the work of social entrepreneurs interested in accountability through their incubator program. The team has committed to grow these programs and others to build accountability in Nepal in the year to come. Read the full 2019 Annual Report here.
