Call for Consultants: Project Management of Integrity Awards

  • Posted In : Press Release

Background


YAF is a youth focused CSO which seeks to redefine the role and contribution of Nigerian youths in the governance and development processes in the country. YAF, under the auspices of the DFID’s ACORN Programme is implementing the Y-PAC project. Y- PAC is a 5-year project which seeks to engage youths to become active advocates in the fight against corruption by mobilizing youth groups nationally through a social movement campaign tagged #MadACT.

The Y-PAC project is being implemented by a consortium of 3 National CSOs; Youth Alive Foundation (Lead Partner), Center for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) and Social Action (SA). The project which targets youths (18-35) in five focal states; Abuja, Akwan Ibom, Kano, Lagos and Rivers states seeks to achieve a reduction in corruption as a result both of stronger incentives not to loot public funds and changing public attitudes that will increasingly disapprove of corrupt activities. 

As part of the strategies premised on achieving the project outcomes, YAF is working to promote integrity, good character and national values through an “Integrity Award” which is aimed at celebrating and encouraging deserving individuals/groups who have exemplified themselves with integrity towards the greater good which contributes to the fight against corruption. This award is not simply aimed at incentivizing integrity but will also serve as a tool that will inspire others to replicate celebrated efforts in their domains.
