Integrity and Corruption in Sri Lanka

Published on


Youth are the lifeline of our nation. Sri Lanka has a youth population of 5 million, amounting to 26% of the total population. Employment opportunities remain a problem and each year 150,000 and 130,000 students leave the school system after sitting for the GCE (O/L) and GCE (A/L) examinations respectively, never pursuing higher studies. This leaves 92% of youth seeking employment, with only rudimentary education In order to establish equitable and economic growth that benefits all youth, Youth themselves must play a role in the process. This growth much like the future of the youth population must be founded on a firm commitment to integrity, honesty and anti-corruption. For this reason, Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) has embarked on an initiative to promote youth integrity and combat corruption in Sri Lanka.
