Future Leaders of Sierra Leone Against Corruption

S.K. and Kabiru -

Making the arrangements for the
establishment of a chapter of FLSLAC in Lumley.
Exciting new society developing in EducAid among the students.  Tired of the country's corruption, they are committing themselves to new ways of thinking and behaving.  Yes!

.....and this is their charter and commitment:


Future Leaders of Sierra Leone Against Corruption

 “Honesty, Truth, Service and Social Justice”

We are an ever-growing society of young Sierra Leoneans dedicated to the building of a free and democratic nation in which corruption no longer holds its people hostage. In our commitment to resisting the temptations of power, wealth, and fame, we hold to an egalitarian principle of organization, by which all people are treated and valued equally, regardless of gender, tribal affinity, age, religion, or race.

Aims and objectives of the FSLAC:
1.   To eradicate corruption in Sierra Leone and beyond;
2.   To sensitize young people about the dangers and destructive consequences of corruption;
3.   To expose corrupt acts and practices to the public eye;
4.   To restore and maintain peace and political stability in Sierra Leone and the world at large;
5.   To boost the economy of Sierra Leone and promote fair, just and positive economic relations with other nations;
6.   To educate young people to become role models for generations to come, as leaders of a morally upright and prosperous Sierra Leone.  

In joining the FSLAC society, each member vows a lifelong commitment to the following principles:

A.   We vow to do all in our power to rid Sierra Leone of corruption and hypocrisy;
B.   We vow to practice honesty in all of our business, civil and educational activities;
C.   We vow to be truthful about the realities of life in Sierra Leone and support social justice for all citizens;
D.   We vow to maintain our sense of unity and common purpose, valuing it above our individual self-interest;
E.   We vow to work as a team and lead by example;
F.   We vow to display publicly and proudly our FLSLAC badge of identity, even in situations where such display evokes derision and criticism, and threatens powerful interests;
G.   We vow to cherish and protect Sierra Leone’s God-given bounty of natural and human resources, securing their use for the benefit of our nation’s people and not self-interested parties and narrowly profit-oriented corporations.
H.  Should we be unable to live and act by these standards, as determined by our local group, we vow to voluntarily leave the society—and surrender our FLSLAC badge of identity.

Our society grows organically by forming a “Crue’ of twelve young people (six female, six male), who select and embrace a unique name and home locality, and elect annually a member to serve as the group’s representative at societal gatherings. There is neither hierarchical organization nor formal by-laws as the sole purpose of FLSLAC is for its members to live the principles we embrace, and to serve as models to our fellow citizens.
