We attach importance to transparency, credibility and accountability. Part of our objective is to handle donations and public funds carefully and publicly: Every year, AWO International voluntarily undergoes an external audit. Auditors, elected by the general meeting, audit the work of the association annually in accordance with the regulations. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as well as the auditors of Aktion Deutschland Hilft also check completed project records at the Aktionsbüro. AWO International has joined the Transparent Civil Society Initiative and is a member of the German Donation Council.
