In 2013 Hivos worked towards achieving a free, fair and sustainable world in co-operation with 722 partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as with a wide range of governments, businesses, research institutes and individuals. In this effort, we contributed to improving the lives of 19.4 million people. We raised almost €135.9 million from our funders – the Dutch government, American and international foundations, the EU, bilateral and multilateral agencies and individual contributors – towards this end. Hivos carried out four main programmes, the results of which included Programme Expression & Engagement, Programme Rights & Citizenship and Programme Green Entrepreneurship. Through its work on democratisation, transparency and accountability, Hivos intends to remain in the forefront of debates on internet freedom, privacy and citizens’ social and political participation. In 2013, Hivos continued to function as civil society co-ordinator of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), which aims to obtain governments’ commitment to increase transparency and provide better access to their data. We also started the Making All Voices Count (MAVC) programme. This is a global initiative managed by Hivos and funded by several donors to help provide creative solutions to enable citizen engagement and government responsiveness, for which Hivos collaborates with IDS and Ushahidi
