On Thursday, August 31, 2023, the Human Rights Defenders Network Sierra Leone successfully concluded a comprehensive two-day training workshop focused on Combating Corruption through a Human Rights Approach.
This significant initiative is part of an extensive six-month project with the overarching goal of curbing corrupt practices within the nation. Additionally, it aims to raise widespread awareness about the far-reaching consequences of corruption on society.
The workshop commenced with targeted training sessions involving various Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that are actively engaged in addressing critical issues within the country. Following this, the subsequent day saw constructive engagements with members of Government Ministries and Agencies.
Corruption stands as an enduring and deeply destructive force that hampers progress and development in nations around the world. Sierra Leone, much like many other countries, grapples with formidable challenges in combatting this pervasive issue. This training initiative represents a crucial step towards fostering a culture of transparency, accountability, and respect for human rights in the ongoing fight against corruption.
