Alliance for Finance Monitoring (ACFIM) is an independent, non-partisan, Pan-African political finance Think-Tank and Watchdog organisation that brings together pro-democracy activists to promote transparency and accountability in political finance.

ACFIM is made up of civil society organisations, university projects, private sector associations, and individuals that advocate for and promote open, transparent and accountable political/electoral financing in Africa.

Join a team of Africans who believe in democracy as the most viable system of governance for African countries. The lack of electoral integrity is a major bottleneck for Africa’s democratisation process. Uncontrolled, undeclared and opaque money in politics is a major cause for lack of electoral integrity.

ACFIM is working on developing homegrown solutions to curb monetization and commercialisation of politics as one avenue of building electoral integrity for sustainable democracy in Africa.
