Accra, Oct. 19,
GNA – A National Integrity Curriculum for students in junior and senior high
schools has been developed to explain in detail the ill effects of corruption
and the need to prevent it at all cost.

A release
signed by Madam Doreen Ami-Narh, the Team Lead for Education Programmes,
LeadAfrique International, a non-profit organisation, and copied to the Ghana
News Agency, said the Curriculum comprised six intensive modules, each with
in-class sessions preceded and followed by activities, written assignments and
project works.

It said
students and teachers would benefit from the rich academic and practical focus
offered by “the first national curriculum in anti-corruption”.

Also included
is a Facilitator’s Manual and Students’ Reader and an animation of the two.

It was
developed by LeadAfrique International in partnership with the  National Centre for Curriculum and Assessment
of the Ministry of Education, funded by STAR-Ghana Foundation.

The release
said the next phase of the project was to gain wider acceptance by all
stakeholders interested in the ethical development of Ghana’s young

“In furtherance
of this, the leadership of LeadAfrique International has begun calling on the
education units of the major religious bodies in the country to adopt this
curriculum, that teaches young people ethics and integrity in a structured and
consistent way.”

The quest to
see this curriculum adopted by all schools has seen LeadAfrique International
making calls on the Christian Council of Ghana, the Catholic Education Unit,
the Adventist Education Unit and the Pentecost Social Services.
