ANSA Arab World kicks off

ANSA-Arab World received funding to develop a regional network for social accountability in the Middle East and North Africa.  The funding agreement was signed by World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick and Director of Governance and Civic Engagement at CARE, Egypt, Amr Lashin on September 22, 2011.

CARE Egypt received a first-year grant of a $ 500 000 from the World Bank’s Development Grant Facility (DGF) as seed capital to help facilitate and establish ANSA across the Arab world. This is the first year of potentially three years of support.
