WHISTLEBLOWING SYSTEM

Purpose

The Africa Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) acting through its Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that financial and material resources mobilised in the name of African Women are put to the service of Africa Women and not diverted to serve personal or material interests. To this end, we have put in place systems and structures to prevent, detect and investigate fraud, corruption, misconduct and malpractice.

This statement encourages staff and other partners to raise concerns about possible fraudulent or corrupt bahaviour rather than overlook them for fear of retaliation. Whistleblowing, will enable the organisations to promptly investigate allegations and take appropriate corrective action to address incidents that might otherwise be undetected. No person who acts in good faith and whistleblows shall suffer harassment, retaliation or any adverse consequences.

Employees can report suspected fraud, corruption or misconduct;

  • directly to their supervisors
  • to the CEO
  • To the Chair of the board

Alternately, to facilitate reporting of suspected violations, where the reporter wishes to remain anonymous, a written statement may be submitted to:

Physical address: AWDF House, Justice Sarkodie Addo Avenue East Legon, Accra, Ghana.

Consultants, grantee partners and any other external person who wishes to report any suspected cases of fraud, corruption or malpractice or any inappropriate activity directly, anonymously, confidentially or otherwise should report through the following channels;
