Transparency International Fiji launches “Fiji Youth for Integrity” on Anti – Corruption day.



International Anti-Corruption Day will be celebrated around the globe on 9th December 2012 and the Fiji Chapter of Transparency International (TI) Fiji will use the annual event to promote its message “Say yes to integrity and no to corruption."

This year’s theme is “Zero Corruption- 100% development” and TI Fiji’s anti-corruption events and promotions will be aimed at building a stronger awareness on the problems of corruption and how individuals especially young people can be empowered to say “no” when they encounter corruption and say “yes” to integrity.

The Fiji Chapter of Transparency International will be launching its Fiji Youth for Integrity Volunteer Network Scheme on the Anti- corruption day. The launch which will take place at Suva’s Tanoa Plaza at 5.30pm will see 45 young leaders/professionals from across Fiji converging to build coalition, knowing more about the anti- corruption work at TI Fiji and how they can promote integrity and anti-corruption to other young leaders/professionals. Also on the day, TI Fiji will be awarding prizes to the young peoplewho took part in the Anti Corruption Film Smart Competition and Drawing competition. Judges will be brought in to choose the best video and artwork and the prizes will be awarded to the winners on the same evening.

Tokasa Alefaio, Programme Coordinator for TI Fiji’s Youth Integrity Promotion (YIP) Programme will be facilitating the launch. “The whole idea behind this volunteer network event is to bring together like minded young professionals and leaders to become more active in becoming integrity advocates/champions in whatever field of work they in,” said Alefaio.

December 9th is recognized as International Anti-Corruption Day in the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. Fiji agreed to be legally bound to the UN Convention Against Corruption in May 2008.
