We would like to take this opportunity to update our community of the following projects which run in 2012 and 2013 and some new projects to run in (2014) and beyond..
Kasempa Free of Corruption
The goal is to campaign for a corruption free Kasempa district.
This is Our new project we intend to start in 2014.
MYDF intends to intensify definite civic education in Kasempa district with the involvement of the general public more especially community based football and netball teams, this is so because we identified that there was a big gap between urban and rural areas in as regard to the fight against corruption in Kasempa District.
Half of the population of Kasempa belongs under 25 yrs of age which are facing problems with corruption being carried out in areas. This is seen from the way certain employments taking place are done. People with money being employed and a vulnerable youth who has no money is left out. There is need to empower the youth to fight against corruption & say no to corruption.
Their participation in public policy monitoring will hold the government accountable for ensuring transparency and accountability in management of public affairs. Hence, this project will give a platform to engage with government in implementing the Nation Anti-Corruption and Prevention Policy.
MYDF will therefore wish to create a platform through sport tournament where the general public will be educated on the effects of corruption and its consequences at this time people will also be informed about the RISE UP AND ACT NOW CAMPAIGN and those can write articles about Corruption will be given time to write so that corruption issues can be addressed and the leaflets on Corruption will be designed in both English and Local language.
