Request for Information on Act Global & Act Global:Red

Willard Foxton made this Freedom of Information request to Department for International Development

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for International Development,

I am interested in the two projects Act Global, and its linked Social Network, Act Global:Red.

I would be interested to know:

*How much DFID money was spent on each project over their lifespans?
*Whether either project survives in any form?
*Whether any full time staff worked on either project.

I would also be interested in seeing any correspondance between DFID (who funded both projects) and Relief International UK and the Citizenship Foundation, who delivered it, especially related to targets set by DFID for effectiveness, and how the projects fulfilled them.

Yours faithfully,

Willard Foxton

Department for International Development
