About us Who we are?

We at K-Monitor firmly believe that corruption is a problem that affects all parts of the society and harms everyone regardless of their beliefs, ethnicity, gender or political orientation. It not only causes enormous economic harm, but also undermines trust in institutions and the rule of law. It endangers democracies and also hurts people in regions where good governance would be must to eliminate hunger, poverty and violence. The best antidote against corruption is a society where citizen have a feeling of ownership over institutions and actively shape their environment. As a non-profit, K-Monitor supports institutions, journalists and individuals to fight corruption through community building, technology development, advocacy and research.

Principles of our operation are openness, independence and a critical approach.
