Aid Accountability Group

VOICE is the founder of the Aid Accountability Group, bringing together members of CSOs, community organizations, and citizen's groups along with concerned individuals from the political and academic sphere to discuss and stand in solidarity against the ineffective and unaccountable use of aid funding, both regional and international. Formed in January of 2008, it continues to campaign actively in Bangladesh and the South Asian region in collaboration with other groups such as the Reality of Aid Network.

  • Contributing to the RoA report 2008
  • Publicizing the issue in the national and international media
