Hibiscus Queen, Lady & King contestants learn about TI Fiji and the Youth Integrity Survey

18/07/2012

TI Fiji presented to the Hibiscus Queen, King and Lady contestants in Suva on 17 July, introducing TI Fiji's vision and mission, its grassroots activities to empower citizens to fight corruption, and its new Youth Integrity Promotion (YIP) Programme.

Fenton Lutunatabua, Programme Coordinator for the YIP Programme (and a former Hibiscus King contestant himself) said that the goals of the YIP Programme were (i) to engage youth in the fight against corruption and (ii) create more opportunities for youth to act with integrity.

Fenton also introduced the Youth Integrity Survey to the contestants, advising that it was scheduled to be delivered over the next two months, with implementation in the Central district, and subsequently in the western and northern districts if required (i.e. if the survey sample taken in Suva does not adequately represent Fiji's population distribution).

Following the presentation, Fenton, and Kerry Barker, TI Fiji Communications Officer, answered various questions from the inquisitive audience members. There was a question about whether some of Fiji's cultural and traditional practices might influence what is defined as "corrupt" - are some activities considered acceptable in Fiji and/or other Pacific countries that might not be acceptable in other countries? Contestants also wanted to confirm that the Youth Integrity Survey results would accurately reflect the different youth perceptions across Fiji, as "the perceptions of someone in Savusavu, for example, are completely different from those in Suva". 

Samantha Kumar, Hibiscus Queen contestant from Savusavu, said she had not heard about TI Fiji prior to the presentation, but she was interested in TI Fiji's activities and the youth integrity survey. Samantha said "It's good to hear that TI Fiji is working with youth to fight corruption. I think that corruption whistleblowers may sometimes feel that they'll be disadvantaged or harassed if they speak up, or that confidentiality might not be guaranteed. It's important for people to know that there are "safe" ways of reporting corrupt activities".

TI Fiji's presentation was part of the capacity development programme that the Hibiscus contestants are involved with in the lead up to the crowning of the Hibiscus Festival royalty. Speakers from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Pacific Young Women's Leadership Alliance also presented, with all of the contestants displaying great interest in the various topics covered, evidenced through the number of well-considered questions directed at the presenters during the Q&A session.
