Transparency Statement

Transparency

We aim to deliver lasting change for the people and communities we work with. To achieve this, we need to be open about what we do, so our applicants, donors and supporters can trust us to spend their money wisely, and the people, communities and partners we work with can help make our shared work as effective as possible.

We are always willing to learn from things that didn’t go so well, in order to improve our performance and increase our impact in the future.

How we are governed

Who we work with

We work in partnership with local and international language and business schools, colleges, universities, NGOs, community-based organisations and community groups in both our humanitarian and long-term development work. We provide information about partner organisations on the Partners page.

We work with government ministries to implement projects and influence policies in favour of communities’ global-wide.

We work in partnership with state owned and private sector companies when we believe that the partnership will lead to positive outcomes for people and is in line with our values.

Forward accountability

EtP UK’s governance team is responsible for supporting EtP’s country offices to enable the communities we work with to hold us accountable. Known as ‘forward accountability’, this approach aims to put our primary stakeholders – the people and communities whom we seek to assist – at the very heart of our work.

The aim is to enable project participants (or intended ‘beneficiaries’) to genuinely understand and influence the programmes from which they ought to benefit, and in this way hold EtP accountable. We work to ensure the active involvement of participants (people and communities), and provide opportunities for feedback and dialogue between EtP and our applicants, at all stages of our services.

Humanitarian codes of practice

In fast-moving emergency responses we are committed to the best practice and continuous improvement. We are looking forward to become a member of the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership and being on the board of The Sphere Project which brings together a wide range of humanitarian agencies to promote effective and accountable humanitarian assistance. The Sphere Handbook provides common principles and universal minimum standards for the delivery of quality humanitarian responses.
