The first school of integrity fellowship programme was inaugurated in November 2021. This year’s series will be the second such event, and TIZ envisions carrying the programme forward going into the future. The School of Integrity is an anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders in Zimbabwe. The School exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and governance.

The concept of school for integrity underlines the importance of peer-to-peer learning, involving, informing, and educating young people on the benefits of integrity, transparency, and good governance. These key facets can make a significant difference in shaping future societies. The school of integrity strategically identifies young people and young leaders from various sectors such as the private and public sector as well as give preference to those from marginalised communities. This year’s school of integrity will be conducted under the theme: “Your right, your role: Building a generation of integrity”.

Delivery Approach

This year’s school of integrity will be conducted physically for a period of 5 days. The different sessions will be facilitated by experts on different topics that are corruption-related. The sessions will also seek to enable the participants to tap into regional and international experiences and open up on how the youths can play their part in the fight against corruption.

The fellows will engage in peer-to-peer learning, group discussions, scenario mapping and analysis of various corruption case studies in the local, regional and international contexts. The fellowship underlines a strong component of network building and thus, fellows will have an opportunity to meet and interface with key government officials – Parliamentarians, Ambassadors, Anti-corruption activists and members within the private sector.

On the last day of the sessions, there shall be a graduation ceremony for all participants. The Ceremony will be graced by delegates from government anti-corruption institutions, members from civil society organisations and the private sector. Motivational speeches to encourage fellows to drive further the anti-corruption agenda will be made by selected speakers. SIDA representatives are expected to attend the ceremony. Each participant will be issued a certificate of participation in the programme.
