Being selected to represent Pakistan in the International Youth Camp (IYC) for Transparency and Integrity was one of the best things to happen to me, as I would realise just days into the camp. This camp, which was held in one the most scenic cities in the world, played a pivotal role in determining much of my future as a powerful and conscientious citizen of my country, and for that I will forever be a better person.
Nothing feeds corruption more than apathy, or the belief that corruption is “just the way life is”.
While ordinary citizens certainly do no bear the sole responsibility for stopping corruption, they can take simple but profound actions to try and challenge the status quo.
Here is what YOU can do.
