Actions Speak Louder than Numbers. ICDI Annual Report 2012
International Child Development Initiatives (NJ1)
In the past years there has been a growing call for (financial) transparency of developmental aid organizations. The general public, or maybe better put: the popular media, are demanding information on cost efficiency and impact of projects. Development aid needs to prove its worth, that's what it basically boils down to. Of course there is nothing wrong with that demand. Sadly the only real, tangible effect so far has been ever in volume size increasing annual reports by the different organizations working in the sector. Each organization is trying to outdo the other in pouring out numbers and more numbers. None of this has of course lead to better or more effective projects, only to more paperwork and probably even less confidence amongst the public. For its 2012 annual report the International Child Development Initiatives (ICDI) has decided to break this trend. ICDI keeps its annual report to an absolute minimum. This report contains programs implemented in various countries, other ICDI activities, ICDI publications 2012, and financial statement.
