Newsletter: Empowering the Vietnamese Youth to Fight Corruption

Building a generation of young leaders who uphold integrity and have the knowledge, skills and courage to demand for greater transparency in government and society, has always been at the heart of Towards Transparency (TT)’s work. TT believes that for a change to be sustainable, it must be underpinned by a widespread public and more specifically by the support and engagement of the youth who makes up more than half of the Vietnamese population. To ranslate its beliefs into action, TT periodically published the Youth Integrity Survey (YIS) that measures the youth perceptions about integrity and their concrete experiences in corruption. Moreover, TT has initiated the “Vietnam Integrity School” (VIS) since 2017, the first of its kind in Vietnam to engage the youth to promote integrity and fight corruption in Vietnam. With the funding support from Irish Aid, VIS has to date welcomed 132 university students and young professionals coming from all over Vietnam. After studying at VIS, the graduates start taking action not only in practicing personal integrity, but also in disseminating knowledge on corruption and integrity amongst their friends, communities as well as to the wider society.
