Have you experienced corruption? (The answer is yes, because we all have!) In this week's WE@AH speaking club, our theme is how we can respond to corruption and sharing how corruption has affected our lives (and how we can overcome those negative effects). Our special guests SACCI (Support to Anti-Corruption Champion Insitutions) are joining us to share their knowledge and experience with shutting down corruption.
Visitors to the event will also have a chance to explore and participate in the exhibit “Ukraine without Corruption,” a continuation of the dialogue that began with the Corruption Park - an interactive project created by the European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI), which is financed by EU and co-financed and implemented by DANIDA. Through a joint effort between America House and the EUACI, the project now continues at America House Kyiv, this time with the addition of youth voices. The exhibit includes digital stories of personal experiences overcoming corruption created by alumni of the U.S. Department of State’s FLEX Program.
