Afghan youth say ‘no’ to corruption

On Dec. 11, more than 200 students from the American University of Afghanistan gathered to celebrate International Anti-corruption Day, in an event that marked the culmination of a semester-long campaign involving workshops, seminars and an essay contest on the problem of corruption in Afghanistan. Representatives from CJIATF-Shafafiyat had partnered closely with students in the anti-corruption seminars and workshops over the course of the semester. In his remarks at the International Anti-corruption Day event, at which student leaders and the university’s president made presentations, Air Force Col. Timothy Kirk, chief of CJIATF-Shafafiyat’s Civil Society Outreach team, explained that, “the most effective weapon in the fight against corruption is in the minds and the hearts of all of you here today.” Kirk expressed the ISAF’s commitment to ensuring that its resources are part of the solution in Afghanistan, not part of the problem. “Even if we are one percent of the problem, it is shameful.” he told the students. “We will not falter or fail,” he concluded, “in our common fight for the good of the people of Afghanistan.”
