What could a frog and a teddy bear possibly have to do with petty bribery? The puppets are characters in a larger play underway in Indonesia to train children from the youngest ages to recognize and reject corruption.
Jiwo Damar Anarkie is the founder and director of Future Anti-Corruption Leaders, a new Jakarta-based nonprofit that teaches children “joyfully” about fair play, honesty and bribery through songs, story telling and, yes, puppet shows. The group trains members and volunteers, and is active in 10 provinces throughout Indonesia.
Jiwo spoke at Transparency International’s 15th International Anti-Corruption Conference in BrasÃlia last month. He was interviewed by 100Reporters’ Chad Bouchard.
