The Public Education Department is responsible for disseminating information and fostering public support against corruption through education and awareness programs as provided under the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012. It is also responsible for cultivating and managing relationships with stakeholders and promoting the vision and corporate identity of the ACC.

The principal functions of the Department are:

  1. Disseminate information to the public and enlist their support against corruption through education and awareness programmes
  2. Cultivate and coordinate relationships with Civil Society and Non-Governmental Organizations involved in anti-corruption activities and civic advocacy.
  3. Produce and provide systematic information on corruption and the ACC through information; education and campaign materials.

The Commission conducts public education and corruption sensitisation programmes through various avenues such as public campaigns, rallies, lectures, radio programmes, workshops, and seminars.

The Commission also has the responsibility to mobilize and foster public support from civil society in the fight against corruption. This calls for closer anti-corruption collaboration with the Government, Civil Society and the private institutions. The fight against corruption can only be won with the support and efforts of everyone.
