This aims to further build a broad-based strategic partnership of all anti-corruption stakeholders. 

The Integrity Development Contest in particular is a nationwide competition for children aimed at introducing to them the fundamentals of good governance and anti-corruption through creative means. There are three categories under this contest namely, Essay Writing, Poster Design and Video Production. 

This is supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and other development partners.
