Integrity Clubs make difference  by mentoring youth in other schools, and engaging in community action projects in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In December 2017, CERC kicked off its first Integrity Clubs. 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’s integrity builders already make a difference in Democratic Republic of the Congo by mentoring youth in other schools, and engaging in community action projects. Thanks to the success of the Integrity Club, CERC is expanding its impact as efficiently as possible by piloting shorter workshops for even more young integrity builders in Uvira.. We are excited to make an even bigger impact through the Congo’s youth

Corruption Perception Survey

This report is a compilation of the results of our first households corruption perception survey conducted in South Kivu. In total 980 people has been interviewed. Results will be used to help government, civil society and the private sector to formulate and implement policies and programs to strengthening integrity and good governance in DRC and thereby reduce corrupt practices.



Engaging community members to build integrity in South-Kivu.

On May 08, 2017, CERC provided trainings to 63 community members in Fizi on how they can build integrity and hold both local government, implementing agencies. service providers and NGOs to account. The motivated people mobilise other people in their own community.

The communities’ biggest focus is the monitoring the delivery of public services in education, health and the implementation of infrastructure projects in their own communities. This is important in a country where 2/4 of people say they paid a bribe to access public services and the implementation of infrastrcture projects are not effective.

Our priority is to mobilise a social movement to promote transparency and build integrity in South-Kivu, reflected in their initiatives and engagements. Very early on, we realised the importance of civil society participation in promoting integrity and promoting transparent, accountable and efficient governance.

Increasing the positive impact of civil society organisations in development, from the grassroots to policy-making.

On May 13, 2017, a total of 40 persons from 23 grassroots organisations in Uvira were trained in anti-corruption strategies and provided with social accountability approach and tools such as the Community Integrity BuildingDevelopmentCheck Online platform and Health and Education Assessment tools. The participants were encouraged to adapt the tools to fit their settings and situations as all them indicated that they didn’t have anything to use regarding the collection of beneficiary findings.

We hope to see this work scaling up beyond civil society on the introduction of Community Integrity Building in communities.

Do you know that Analphabetism, Poverty and hunger are often the result of corruption?

The answer, we believe, lies with the children. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Through our Integrity Building programme , we seek to equip them with good values at a stage when their character is formed can help reduce the likelihood of children growing up to become corrupt.
