ACC sets up ‘integrity store’ in two Dhaka schools
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has set up “integrity stores” (Satata Store) in Wills Little Flower School and Udyan School in Dhaka, under a joint initiative of ACC and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The stores have no cashier and students must drop the price of books, pencils, pens etc into a box themselves. This is to help them learn and practice the principal of integrity from an early age, according to ACC. A total of 636 integrity stores have been set up at different secondary level educational institutions across the country. “We are installing the integrity stores in schools across the country as part of our program to prevent corruption,” said ACC Commissioner AFM Aminul Islam at the opening program on Sunday at Wills Little Flower School. He said they hoped these stores will help schoolchildren improve their sense of integrity and by practicing honesty from an early age. Aminul said it would take the combined initiative of students, teachers and parents to stop the unethical practices of admission forgery, coaching business and question paper leaks. The ACC has a plan to expand the stores in all secondary level schools and madrasas in phases. Three integrity stores have already been set up in schools in Narsingdi, Madaripur and Sylhet. ACC Director General (DG prevention) Md Zafor Iqbal, DG (money laundering) Md Atikur Rahman Khan, UNDP Country Director Sudipta Mukharjee, and Director of Dhaka Divisional office Nasim Anwar were present at the program, among others.
