Transparency, accountability and good governance
The Certification Programme seeks to bring transparency, accountability and good governance in the
nonprofit sector in Pakistan. The first initiative of its kind in South Asia; it involves the evaluation of a
nonprofit organisation on standardized parameters of internal governance, financial management and programme delivery.
This voluntary assessment aims to enhance NPOs credibility and its access to funding. Through the
allied activities of this programme, PCP promotes certified NPOs in an annual directory and on its website and also
builds capacity of not for profits for greater effectiveness.
Capacity Building is not just about strengthening not for profits today, it also enhances their capability to bring a positive imapct on people in the community.
PCP has developed some tools for not for profits to help them become more effective and sustainable.

To become Certified or not? A question on the minds of many NPOs at the moment, not just the larger ones.
PCP Certification is an unbiased comprehensive assessment of an organization's quality of services by an independent evaluation system.
