Since its founding in 2002, Ciudadanos al Día (CAD) has sought to revolutionize the relationship between citizens and their government in Peru. As an activist NGO, CAD works to improve the citizen-state relationship at all levels of government office by introducing interventions which lead to a state that is more transparent, efficient, and equitable, and to a citizenry that is more informed, demanding, and engaged. CAD’s innovation is having an impact and gaining national and international recognition. In a 2007 survey of Peruvian policy makers, CAD ranked among the top six most influential NGOs in Peru.
