Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. TI challenges the inevitability of corruption, and offers hope to its victims.
We are a global network with over 90 locally established national chapters and chapters-in-formation. You can help the work of TI by joining your national chapter, donating money to support activists, or by using social media to wake up your friends to the problem of corruption.
Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.
Corruption is when a family has to choose between paying a bribe so that a doctor will see its sick child, and putting food on the table.
Corruption is when thousands of people die in an earthquake beneath collapsed buildings because safety inspectors were bought off.
Corruption is when bureaucrats steal public money to buy mansions and cars instead of investing it in low-cost housing and public transport.
Corruption has many forms. It causes sleepless nights for millions of people – but too often not for the corrupt. Transparency International is working to change that.
