Civil society activists play a valuable role amplifying stories and they will often use evidence found by journalists to help shape policy demands and to promote change.
In some cases, they also show that combatting tax abuse, illicit finance and grand corruption require new laws and practices. Oxfam Novib offers small grants to civil society activists in Africa and Asia who follow up on Money Trail stories with policy and advocacy initiatives and/or campaign ‘spikes’ in their respective countries. Eligible small grants follow-up on a Money Trail story with a relevant policy asks and/or compellingly explain the story to a much larger audience.
