Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has commemorated this year’s International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) by carrying out various programmes across the country at local and national levels. In line with the United Nation’s theme ‘Uniting the World against Corruption’, TIB has engaged people in Dhaka and 45 working areas with the slogan “United Against Corruption”.
TIB’s Civic Engagement division worked alongside local government administration, law enforcement agencies, and civil society leaders to spread the anti-corruption message.
Anti-corruption activists participated in human chains organised jointly by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and TIB. The human chains also chanted slogans calling for the end of irregularities and corruption in all sectors. The social movements against corruption also involved school children from different localities.
TIB’s YES volunteers, Active Citizen’s Group (ACG), and Committees of Concerned Citizens (CCC) from 45 areas also participated in rallies, discussion sessions, and information fairs.
A group of volunteer cyclists also carried the anti-corruption message across their Upazila to make people aware of the unity against corruption.
