Railway Children is committed to being transparent in its work and accountable to its key stakeholders, in particular children living alone and at risk on the streets. We share information with partner organisations, and the general public, and we are accountable to our staff, volunteers, supporters, donors, suppliers and governments where we work.
We are publishing our current DFID accountable grant for 2013-2015 to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Standard which can be found on the IATI Registry. This data will be updated quarterly (in arrears) for the lifetime of the grant.
This is just the start of our IATI journey and we intend to publish more data on Railway Children activities during 2014. You can find out more about our future plans in our IATI implementation schedule.
The information we publish and how we respond to requests for information are important aspects of accountability. We will publish information, and on request will disclose information, or give reasons for any decision not to disclose (for example, to respect confidentiality or privacy). Our key criteria for the decision will be the impact on our mission to support children living on the streets.
If you wish to use our information our license requires you to attribute your use of our database. We ask that you attribute us not only as a legal requirement, but also because your attribution allows us to demonstrate support and impact of our work, which in turn helps us to continue our work.
Part of the IATI standard requires publication of documents relating to grants. Below you can find information on our DFID grant. Annual reviews and other related documents will be added as they are created.
