The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education has ended the first phase of establishing Student Integrity Clubs in Liberian Schools.
The project is being sponsored by the UNDP under its STAOP Project.
The first phase of the project targeted several high schools including the William V.S. Tubman, D. Tweh, Paynesville Community, New Port and the Marvii Sonii Junior High School in Clara Town.
The project is expected to be extended to schools throughout the country.
The initiative by the LACC and the Ministry of Education to establish Student Integrity Clubs is aimed at providing and sharing corruption information among students as future leaders of Liberia.
The LACC intends to continue its engagement with the students by upgrading their knowledge of anti-corruption issues.
Speaking at the close of the first phase of the project held at the D. Tweh High School in New Kru Town recently, a LACC Commissioner, Mrs. Aba Hamilton Dolo, pointed out that corruption has continued to impede national development and admonished members of the Students Integrity
Clubs to uphold the virtues of integrity in their new roles as LACC Ambassadors.
The LACC Commissioner challenged students to expose corruption in their various schools and assured them of the Commission’s support in the performance of their tasks.
