Integrity Watch is an Afghan civil society organization committed to increase transparency,
accountability, and integrity in Afghanistan.
The mission of Integrity Watch is to put corruption under the spotlight through community
monitoring, research, and advocacy. We mobilize and train communities to monitor infrastructure
projects, public services, courts, and extractives industries. We develop community monitoring tools,
provide policy-oriented research, facilitate policy dialogue, and advocate for integrity, transparency,
and accountability in Afghanistan.
Integrity Watch was created in October 2005 and established itself as an independent civil society
organization in 2006. It has approximately 92 staff members and 1400 volunteers. The head office of
Integrity Watch is in Kabul with provincial programmatic outreach in Balkh, Bamyan, Herat, Kabul,
Kapisa, Nangarhar, Parwan, Paktia and Kunduz.
Integrity Watch’s work has three major components: (1) Community Monitoring, (2) Research, and
(3) Advocacy. Integrity Watch tries to encourage active citizenship and community mobilization
through its programs. Our community monitoring work includes development of community
monitoring tools, mobilizing and training communities to monitor infrastructure projects, public
services, courts, and extractives industries.
