This represents the first Aid Management Platform in Spanish and includes new features that facilitate monitoring and evaluation at both the project and strategic levels. The customized platform will help the government track and report on aid flows by integrating data from its current systems into a comprehensive Web portal, and enabling more detailed analysis. During the pilot, the foundation's technical specialists will work closely with staff from the Ministry of Planning to make further modifications to the prototype system and support capacity building. In the coming months, work will continue to finalize the platform for full implementation.

Success Story

Colombia
While many young people are just interested in iPods, bars, and the latest fashions, youth in Colombia are getting involved in more substantive issues. They are showing what their generation can do to increase accountability in government. Ocasa, a nonprofit organization located in Bogota, has generated a large network of young people who are engaged in strengthening democratic institutions in their country. The nonprofit develops programs on transparency in public institutions and civic participation. Ocasa has trained more than 100 people, ages 16 to 30, in anti-corruption courses.
