The annual Sir Anthony Siaguru Walk Against Corruption (SASWAC) is an occasion where civil society, school students, corporate organisations unite in a walk to raising awareness on the importance of eradicating corruption.
Organisers believe by working together, everyone can contribute to minimising the level of corruption, which translates to a better PNG.
Bank South Pacific (BSP) has been a supporter of this annual walk since it started and this year the bank is backing two schools. The two schools, Port Moresby National High and Marianville Secondary are enthusiastic to participate and will proudly wear the popular lime green.
BSP Manager Corporate Sponsorship Rosemary Mawe presented the schools with the t-shirts this week and confirmed that BSP will also have its own teams in Port Moresby and Lae participating.
“The purpose of the event is to bring together people from all sectors of society to raise awareness on corruption, and we are happy to support the cause,” she said.
The walk, organised by Transparency International (PNG) will take place on held on Sunday June 8 and thousands are expected to participate in both centres, trumpeting the theme: “Zero Corruption – 100% Development”.
