Mobilising youth in the fight against corruption

06/08/2013

Fiji’s population is dominated by youth and these youth are the leaders of today. As these youth continue to become educated it is also very vital that they are equipped with the right skills and principles to become leaders with integrity.

Throughout the world there have been many workshops and forums happening to educate people so they become leaders in the fight against corruption due the massive effect of corruption on people, society and the nation as a whole.

Transparency International (TI) Fiji, the Non Government Organisation (NGO) solely dedicated to fighting corruption in the country values that if youth are taught the principles of integrity, transparency and accountability, these youth will become quality leaders in their respective fields.

TI Fiji through its Youth Integrity Promotion Programme (YIP) organised a three day workshop on Integrity and leadership at Nadi’s Fun World Centre for 50 young leaders of the western division. The participants were mostly Head Boys and Head Girls form 25 secondary schools from the Sigatoka to Rakiraki corridor.

The workshop which was the second for the students on the main island of Fiji was titled “Leading is not what you do, but who you are,” was aimed at educating young people to become leaders in the fight against corruption in their daily and professional lives. The workshop was also focused on installing qualities of a good leader, critical thinking, civic education and human rights.

For majority of the students this was the first time that they got to hear about corruption and it's impacts on people, society and the nation, however, on the brighter side the students were glad that TI Fiji conducted the workshop for the western students as this enabled them to get an insight knowledge on corruption and how it impacts them.

After the workshop, the students felt empowered and willing to stand against corruption and become effective leaders who are enthusiastic about fighting corruption.

“Transparency International Fiji has really motivated me to join hands in eliminating corruption in Fiji,” said Rovil Rynal, who attends Nadi’s Votualevu College.

“It has built the characteristics of being a good leader in my school, community, society and most importantly for my nation. As a representative of Votualevu College it made me realize the importance of being not only a leader but being a leader who is engaged efficiently in giving the best to those who have given him the authority. After this workshop I have erased the word corruption from my dictionary,” added Rynal.

Esala Rokoduguni of Ratu Navula Secondary in Nadi said “The objectives of your organization, that is mobilising youth against corruption was really an eye opener.Also on addressing more on our roles as leaders not only in the organisations we are in but also on our roles as The Future Leaders of this nation,”

Natabua High School’s, Head Girl Aisha Rafiq said “I have leant that “Corruption is a crime”, I also learned how to capture corruption stories in video using the cameras. Rule of law, civic education and I have joined the fight against corruption,”

“I will report if I have become a victim of corruption,” said the form seven student.

These youth are serious about the fight against corruption and to show their seriousness have started to carry out presentation in their local community and school to address how seriously corruption affects everyone’s lives.

Viliame Vauavu Gaugau, of Tavua College delivered a presentation to his school after the workshop and plans to conduct similar presentations his village people about the corruption and the effects of it to his village.

“I did a presentation on my school assembly and everybody has learnt a lot from it, especially that corruption is a crime and it cannot be accepted in our community. I will do a presentation in Nabuna village, which is my village to tell my people about this issue,” said Gaugau.

TI Fiji believes more youths will be mobilised and empowered when it conducts its third integrity and leadership workshop training programme in Savusavu from the 16th -18th of this month.
