Councils’ Youths Encouraged to Deal with Corruption

The Kiribati Children’s Campaigners Network (KCCN) is partnering with KiLGA, to involve Council youth groups to run anti-corruption campaigns and inform the local leaders and communities about corruption and help prevent and stop it.

The programme is supported by UNDP which has allocated $1,000 towards it. Nine outer islands have been selected to participate because of their reliable internet connections and nearness to Tarawa. In a letter to Mayors involved, KiLGA explained that such activities as composing songs, drama, stories and performing them, would be ideal. As this is a trial, it is hoped that the remaining Councils will be involved once additional funding are received.

SPTO team includes KiLGA in a documentary filmed in Kiribati

A threeSPTO-person team from the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO), visited the KiLGA office on Tuesday, 1 December, to film an interview with the KiLGA’s Executive Officer, on the role of Councils and the Local Government Association in tourism planning and development in Kiribati.

KiLGA is promoting tourism on the outer islands where the environment is pristine and healthier, traditional culture practised and an increase in visitors can contribute to the Councils’ earnings and the economy.
