If corruption is talked about a lot in the media and among the general public, it will go higher on the agenda of policy-makers.
When corruption is high on the public agenda: policy makers are more likely to act in defense of their country and communities.
Including ratifying or enacting UNCAC.

ALUMNI CENTRE FACILITIES
ALUMNI CENTRE
The Alumni Center is estimated to cost Kshs 900 millions (US$ 11.2 million) according to the draft design and will take 2-3 years to complete(2013 to 2015). The University of Nairobi Council has donated 2 acre land as their contribution to the Alumni Centre project.
The project will be funded by internal sources such as the alumni contributions, outsourced funds from well wishers, friends, corporates, donors and collaborators.
We welcome our alumni, corporates and donors to join hands with us as we deliver this US$ 11.2 million World Class Alumni Centre.

This year’s joint campaign 9 Dec draws a clear line between corruption and the inability to reach the internationally agreed upon MDGs.
This is accomplished by showing fictitious but internationally recognizable examples of corruption and tying these to development areas such as democracy, justice, education, health care, etc.

Awareness raising takes many forms beyond the traditional campaigns with brochures, posters and PSA’s:
Here are some up and coming prevention tools that UNODC is working on.
The advocacy guide is intended as a resource to help any interested person or organization plan and execute powerful campaigns around UN International Anti-Corruption Day, 9th December.
The guide’s suggestions can be implemented with extremely limited resources.
Specifically, this advocacy guide:
• Communicates the purpose and goals of the UN International Anti-Corruption Day.
• Highlights key issues relevant to corruption: the current challenges and situation, some facts and figures.
