I assisted the Accountability Lab with communications and storytelling for several months in 2017-18. The Lab uses a contrarian approach to tackling corruption in several poor countries. Rather than harp on depressing trends around graft and government malfeasance, it spotlights honest public servants and supports young people trying to improve their societies. The idea is to begin to raise hopes and expectations about the behavior of government workers and gradually turn the tide on corruption. I found the strategy compelling and deserving of more support and resources because of its emphasis on inspiration and hope -- ingredients lacking in typical anticorruption campaigns. I was also impressed by the organization. The Lab's founder and executive director Blair Glencorse is a great leader and visionary. I worked with many creative and talented people in the Lab's offices in Pakistan, Mali, Nigeria, Nepal and Liberia. They seemed genuinely inspired by the opportunity to work toward positive change for their countries.

I am part of their accelerator program. The most amazing things about the Lab is that it is doing a great work combining entrepreneurship and promotion of accountability. They are findings ways to make social movement sustainable and at the same time scalable. They are also not afraid to take risks by investing in start ups whose success is far from certain. For us, they not only provided financial support but also helped us network with relevant individuals and organizations and as a result our accountability related project is still going strong even after the end of financial support from them and we have been finding multiple avenues to collaborate.

With the support from Accountability Lab, we have been able to accomplish all that we did and empower young people across Nepal to take the financial future and accountable society into their own hands via financial literacy, budget literacy, and State offer program. Thank you, Team!

Accountability Lab is one of the most vital organizations I know, leading a generational movement for trust, accountability and transparency in governance in nascent democracies. They've taken on the difficult but necessary work of cultural change through "naming and faming" good public servants rather than "naming and shaming" bad actors.

Accountability Lab is emerging and one of the most trusted nonprofits in Nepal working on accountability and transparency issues. Integrity Idol is one of the best products of Accountability Lab which acknowledges and encourages government officials to be transparent and accountable by naming and framing. Engagement with youths and working closely with local government units are the demonstrated expertise of Accountability Lab. I am privileged to share that I was an Accountapreneur fellow of Accountability Lab.

Accountability Lab (AB) has been working with a dedicated team of professionals and volunteers with a mission to contributing to the promotion of good governance in the country. One of its key activity is the selection of 'Integrity Leaders' from among the large mass of the public service providers. The selection process is completed by following a rigorous scrutiny of the data and information widely collected for the purpose. This has enhanced the credibility and fairness of the organization. "Integrity Leaders" have played important role to the promotion of the values like accountability,Integrity and transparency in the society.
