The evaluation of global aid programs is crucial to understand the meaning behind their work in the development of communities to conclude the improvements that can be done as well as the potential inefficient results that can be avoided. The Republic of Zambia, a country rich in natural resources, is also rich in attracting international NGOs that are interested in combating challenges concerning the lack of governmental transparency and advocacy for collaboration with the citizens. One of the organizations that proposes some strategies to create and sustain civil society’s collaborations with policy-makers and citizens is Counterpart International. Counterpart International has developed a program called Fostering Accountability and Transparency in Zambia (FACT Zambia) to address the lack of capacity and transparency among Civil Service Organizations (CSOs). Counterpart is doing this to aid in efforts that already exist in Zambia in order to facilitate more participatory involvement in development.
