Transparency International (TI) is looking for young anti-corruption activists to bring fresh ideas to the problem of land corruption in Africa. The organisation believes that Africa’s youth have the potential to create new and exciting changes in their communities but are prevented from pursuing their dreams by corruption.
In response to this undesirable situation, TI has launched a competition to identify youth with an instinct for innovation and the drive to tackle corruption in the important land sector. Young visionaries – especially those already fighting corruption and those from other fields with an interest and ideas around anti-corruption – are invited to apply.
The deadline for applications is 31 October. Successful applicants will be notified by 7 November.
“We want to engage a new generation of changemakers – those with the ability to devise agile solutions to intractable problems together with an unwavering determination to do good in this world – to help us hold governments and powerful people to account,” TI notes.
“If you have a passion for innovation, the ability to devise new solutions to old problems, and a willingness to challenge the established orthodoxy, then we want to hear from you.”
