On 24th December 2011, VAP organized the first anti- corruption activity in the community with the youths of Rescue Dada children home. The initial agenda was to have a holiday treat socialize, have fun and teach the youth about the dangers of corruption through football based activities. A total of 100 youth from rescue dada centre and 5 VAP anti corruption crusaders (ACC) assembled together for this wonderful day.
It all started with introduction, followed by the anti-corruption game titled “Prosecution Game After the game the youth led by ACC gathered together and started to discuss the dangers of corruption and what would happen if the perpetrators were left to go scot free. It really generated a lot of discussion amongst the youth and how important it is to stop corruption right from the youth since the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. The key message of the game was to let the youth learn that whenever one is caught up into corruption deals and is proved to be guilty, he/she should be prosecuted so as to stop the vice and act as a lesson to others who are practicing the vice.”If we start fighting corruption as early as our youth, then our future leadership would be great and free of corruption.”Said 14 years old Joseph Ngiza a program participant.
“I believe it is possible to stop corruption and since the youth are the foundation of a nation and future leaders, they are in a good position to stop completely. It is through awareness programs like this that can help erase corruption practices. Said Janet Mwambia,the Director of Rescue Dada centre. we thank you for your continous donations..
Students at Grasam Secondary School were presented with pre-survey forms to gauge their knowledge on Corruption. A total of 150 students both boys and girls were involved in this exercise that was conducted by VAP’s Anti-Corruption Crusaders(ACC).Each student was issued with a copy of the pre-survey form that included basic questionnaires on issues surrounding corruption. The pre-survey conducted by VAP to students is very vital as it provides the foundation of the implementation of the entire manual to the participants. Once participants are done with the entire course, they are normally issued with a post-survey questionnaire that also gauges the impact of the program to the participants. One of the questions in the pre-survey form is (Are male more corrupt than female?) This question normally generates a lot of discussions amongst the participants with every one trying to defend his/her gender.”Male are more corrupt because they would easily request for bribe openly without any fear, and so this program is very important especially for us young people who aspire to be the leaders of tomorrow as it shapes our integrity” Said Josephine Atieno a form 2 student at Grasam
