About: Credibility Alliance is a consortium of voluntary organisations committed towards enhancing accountability and transparency in the voluntary sector through good governance.

It is an initiative that emerged from within the sector and was registered in May 2004 as an independent, not – for – profit organisation after an extensive consultative process over a period of two years involving thousands of voluntary organisations all over India. As an organisation CA aspires to build trust among all stakeholders through improving governance with in the voluntary sector. Credibility Alliance is akin to a professional body that will set norms or standards of governance.

These norms shall operate on the principle of self-regulation that respects the autonomy and seeks to preserve the spirit of innovation in the voluntary sector. As an initiative whose hallmark has been the participatory approach, Credibility Alliance shall develop suitable norms through wide-ranging consultation with and participation of diverse organisations within the sector. It plans to achieve this by developing a large membership base. The members shall participate in the process of evolving suitable guidelines based on voluntary disclosure of information and adhere to them. This shall promote the ideals of accountability and transparency within the voluntary sector. In addition, Credibility Alliance has developed an Accreditation System and Peer Group Review Modell based on the norms to strengthen and enhance the legitimacy and the credibility of individual organisations in the sector. Capacity building initiatives required to equip voluntary organisations to meet the norms shall also be promoted.
