"They (KPK) appreciated it since the first province to replicate KPK buses are city government and their approach around the school. If it is calculated, there are 1,104 elementary schools, 1,095 junior highs schools, 2,652 senior high schools that will have anti-corruption education. So the consequence is more than 4,000 schools will apply it, as this is an investment thus children will have a value of choice not to corrupt," he added.
After the inauguration, those ambassadors who consist of 80 teachers and 80 students would undergo anti-corruption education from school to school. They also planned to hold a campaign through creative ways to foster an anti-corruption culture early on.
The first school chosen was in SMPN 39 Jakarta, Before serving, they have got training and debriefing and are hoped able to spread the spirit of honesty, responsibility, discipline, courage and fairness to students and society at large. Especially for teachers (ambassadors), will be included in training activities and certification of anti-corruption counselors at the KPK.
As for the anti-corruption campaign bus has been specially designed and is completed with anti-corruption campaign materials such as, books, videos, vlogs, films, music, and anti-corruption-themed games. The city is the only region that has its own anti-corruption campaign bus, which is the second bus in Indonesia. Previously, the KPK had used similar buses to hold a campaign.
Unfortunately the Thousand Islands cannot be reached yet. Therefore, they plan to make an anti-corruption corner in the school boat.
