ONGOING PROGRAM & EVENTS
CERC plans to launch “Integrity Idol”, a nationwide campaign run by citizens in search for honest government officials.
In December 2017, CERC kicked off its first Integrity Clubs. This effort forms part of the activities under the “Student acting for Honesty, Integrity and Equality (SHINE) Project funded by the Integrity Action and it is to be implemented in 140 secondary schools in South-Kivu by 2021.
In attendance were motivated young leaders from all disciplines and with varying ambitions – but each with the potential to work together for a better governance in the DRC.
Integrity builders selected were 360 including motivated 20 principals, 40 teachers and 300 students in 20 secondary schools in Uvira (158 girls and 142 boys). After 4 intensive days of training for principals & teachers and 3 intensive days of training for students, including lessons that are a mixture of interactive lectures and open-ended, also with continual skill-building activities.
As result of this investment in youth, trained integrity builders continue to transform their talent into integrity leadership with monthly sessions with young people in schools and in community and bring others people into the fold.
CERC is an independent non-partisan and non-profit organization that empowers citizens, through education and civic engagement, to build transparency and accountability in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
CERC empowers citizens to fight corruption and build integrity. Our team helps young people to develop ideas – and the communities around them – that can make decision-makers more responsible.
We provide our “community monitors” with training, networking and ICT technical support. This helps them create high-impact across their communities through community awareness raising on corruption and public services and infrastructure projects monitoring.
