Teso Anticorruption Coalition (TAC) is a registered coalition of indigenous Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), credible individuals, and community based organisation (CBOs) that can demonstrate commitment to TAC’s objectives and core mandate. TAC members subscribe to the goal that joint campaigns and advocacy activities against corruption and abuse of office help spur access to better services.
The purpose of TAC is to create, nurture and harness a shared civil society platform for promoting good governance and strengthening CSO coordination, networking and advocacy in the fight against corruption. Currently, the membership of TAC is mainly made up of local organisations but the organisation is licensed to operate in all regions of Uganda.
The pursuit of social accountability in public service delivery is a leading commitment that TAC has put its efforts for promoting and upholding good governance and sustainable development. For 12 years now, TAC has contributed significantly in the social accountability work in Teso sub-region. To consolidate on the progress so far, we believe that political acumen and strategic management is the way forward.
TAC and her development partners need to continue strategically contributing to voice, representation, transparency and accountability in Teso sub-region and beyond. Thus, the birth of this third strategic plan.
We believe that acting on our collective experiences and lessons learnt gives us a niche to scale up social accountability work in Teso and beyond. The actions and mechanisms initiated by citizen groups to hold public officials, politicians, and service providers accountable, have gained momentum and now require synergizing, consolidating and replicating best practices. Thus, improving people’s welfare and protecting people’s rights.
Currently; TAC is committed to strengthening anti-corruption and accountability actors, creating and sustaining platforms and networks, enhancing citizen participation, increasing on accountability collaboration and build a much stronger and well-coordinated coalition.
