Student monitors successfully audit the constructi
The Teacher Creativity Center (TCC) believes in working together with communities, businesses, and government others to improve services for people in Palestine. With support from Integrity Action, they have established a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Education in Palestine enabling them to train teachers and students to monitor projects and services that matter to them.

Following training by TCC in 2013, 1200 students from 40 schools in Palestine monitored 40 development projects and shared their findings and recommendations with key stakeholders to ensure problems were addressed wherever possible. One successful example came from students at the Abd al Hamid Al Sayeh Secondary School in Nablus. With their new monitoring skills, these volunteer student monitors audited the construction of a stadium built with funds from the Nablus municipality in 2011.

The student monitors chose to monitor this project because it was the largest project constructed in Nablus over the last 3 years, valued at $1,350,000. The stadium was also close to the students’ school, so it was easy for them to access the project site and meet with project stakeholders such as the construction company. While monitoring, the students discovered that the start of the project had been delayed by one year.They also found out that the project had not been completed. Some fixtures, such as the lighting, were missing, and the outside roads were not paved.

The monitors presented their findings and recommendations to address these problems to the local Municipality Director. Initially, the municipality refused to listen to their advice and the students were ignored. The students however would not be deterred by the lack of action from the municipality. They decided that they needed to bring the matter into the public arena so that action would be taken. They held a public hearing in their school hall with the intention of reaching a wider audience. Representatives from the municipality, the Palestinian Anti-Corruption Commission as well as members from the public, participated in the public meeting.

The Palestinian Anti-Corruption Commission was so impressed by what the monitors had achieved they decided to intervene. They ordered the municipality to open an investigation into the behaviour of their engineering department.

This intervention brought about some much needed changes to the project. The remaining fixtures were finished, the outside road was paved, and the project has now been completed and is used by over 160,000 people who live in Nablus. Furthermore, because they were so impressed with the work of the student monitors, the Anti- Corruption Commission initiated a partnership with them. The monitors now invite the Commission to all public hearings they host, and then send them the results and recommendations.

Through their partnerships, TCC is enabling citizens in Palestine to have a far greater role in the implementation of development projects for the benefit of the public, bringing about improvements in service delivery in Palestine.

Integrity Action has worked with TCC in Palestine since 2008. During this period, TCC has trained 1900 students and teachers as community monitors. These monitors have audited 73 projects within their own communities with a total value of over $6,000,000. This has improved the lives of over 200,000 people living in the West Bank.
