Initiative Transparent Civil Society

In 2012 CRISP signed the Initiative Transparent Civil Society by Transparency International. Hereby we aim to contribute towards increasing transparency in the non-profit sector.

We invite other organizations to join us in signing this initiative. Civil society needs to be transparent and organized democratically, otherwise it risks its credibility and hence its legitimacy.

Below, we present an overview of our finances, our structure of organization and decision-making, and the leadership of our organization. For further questions do not hesitate to contact us.

Our Annual Reports give you a summary of our projects and internal developments, as well an overview of our financial activities. For further details please have a look at our Annual Reports.

The day-to-day business of the association is managed by the two executive board members. General and strategic decisions are discussed, developed, planned and implemented in cooperation with the project coordinators. As a rule, the implementation of individual activities is the responsibility of the project coordinators. An overview of the whole team can be found here.

In addition to the project coordinators, there are also positions for trainees. After a twelve-month traineeship, we aim to transfer the position to that of a project coordinator.

In addition, we are working with an assistant in the context of a three-month internship. Furthermore, CRISP is a recognized "hosting organization" for European volunteers and usually two European volunteers from our target regions support us in our work for twelve months. We also work with external trainers and of course our project partners.
