The Accountability Lab is registered as a 501(c)3 status non-profit organization in the United States, and has locally-registered entities in Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Mali and Pakistan. People often ask us why we work in these countries. Great question! Here are the key factors we consider in selecting our locations:
Demand: We work where there is explicit demand for the Lab’s work from young people, communities and governments.
Strategy: We work where there are changes happening and we can help to shape evolving accountability dynamics.
Knowledge: We work where we know how decisions get made and we have networks that can help us maximize the impact of everything we do.
Partnerships: We work where we have partners that can provide the support we need to scale-up and sustain our efforts over time.
Cost-effectiveness: We work where we can make the most impact with the least amount of funding.
Sustainability: We work where we know our accountapreneurs can build a community that is likely to endure
