Today 9-December is International Anti-Corruption Day. Corruption hurts all of us. As much as we’d like to, we cannot ever stop corruption completely, because there is a lot happening that we don’t even know about.
But we can do something about it:
1. We can report it whenever we see it. In fact, this is why we started FraudCracker.com, to give you a voice in the fight against fraud and corruption, without anyone knowing your name.
2. And we can say no to corruption and wrongdoing when these happen in our daily lives.
It all starts and stops with us. Because our children see our behaviour today, and will behave the same way tomorrow. If they see us as parents offering or accepting bribes, or behaving unethically, then that’s what they’ll do tomorrow.
So starting today, International Anti-Corruption Day, let’s stop corruption while it’s still small and manageable. This is my challenge to myself and to you. Let’s say no to corruption and wrongdoing today, and stop the rot for our children tomorrow!
