Our INTEGRITY SCHOOL PROGRAM is running in Manila's top 3 universities: UP, DLSU, & ADMU.
With over 100 student volunteers in one year, Bantay.ph aims to educate the youth about good governance and good citizenship. We recognize the value in engaging the youth while promoting values such as integrity, social accountability, and honesty.
Students also get a chance to personally monitor different frontline government offices and take a proactive stance against corruption. We are currently in need of more partner school or volunteer organizations.
Feel free to get in touch with us at email@example.com to set up a meeting.

Close the feedback loop and try writing to your city hall. Suggest improvements or tell them they are doing a good job! (Make sure you indicate the specific office you want to get in touch with)
SPOTTED! This means that fixers were spotted and/or reported lurking around in the city hall. Why does it matter? Because people shouldn't have to pay a bribe to get things done. We want equal access for everyone. The presence of fixers just encourages a system where people only do their job when paid extra. Good government service is a right!
This is an unofficial sentiment meter on how people feel about their city's government service. We want to see if there is a correlation between compliance and citizen satisfaction. This can also help people gauge the efficiency of the service in a city hall in case they themselves might want to avail of services in that office. Feel free to write a review and rate your experience.
Scores are determined via volunteer and client surveys in the areas of: Basic Compliance (physical indicators of ARTA and presence of fixers), Transparency (process transparency and how well these information materials are understood), Process Flow (ease and convenience of client going from one step to another), Facilities (waiting area, fixures, lighting, and locatino accessibility), and Government Employees (helpfulness and courtesy of employees working in the city hall. The scorecard is patterned after the Civil Service Commission's Report Card Survey but tweaked to focus more on the citizen experience.
