The Voices Case Studies initiative of GYAC intends to enable the exchange of knowledge, tools, and innovative approaches in anti-corruption and governance reform work done by the Network’s very own members. Though scholarly papers and toolkits are of great value, GYAC finds that giving its members empirical examples of youth-led anti-corruption and governance reform projects will ensure that youth have a platform to share and develop their own means of affecting change in these areas by learning from one another. As such, the Voices Case Studies capture members’ project work and highlight,
- Context and background
- Planning and implementation
- Outcomes and next steps (whichever applies)
Even if scope of the GYAC Network is global and its members tend to work on a more local level, the Voices Case Studies will highlight tools, methodologies, and ideas that transcend this operational constraint and highlight what is useful to anyone working to increase transparency and improve social accountability for better and more inclusive governance in their society. In fact, the case studies will help highlight who is doing what, where, and how. This will enable members all over the world to connect and have a more targeted way of getting information from one another’s project, to learn better from each other. The Voices Case Studies will be the doorstep into the anti-corruption and governance reform work youth members are interested in knowing more about.
If you are interested in sharing your own knowledge, tools, and innovative means of fighting corruption, you can by reaching the Communications Unit at email@example.com. Connect and share to increase your impact and help other do that too.

Summary: Shudhify produces and disseminates a highly localized datamap of selected government offices in Bangalore, India. The data are aggregated from surveys collected on site and track the quality of service provision, as well as the level of efficiency and corruption in the government offices covered. The project also conducts performance activism such as weekly “dares,” organized with theatre groups and colleges. These are aimed at communicating the data, making them “alive,” and capturing the public’s imagination and attention to act on the corruption issues exposed.
