The project has helped to increase personnel competence, proficiency, to assure continuity, to improve service delivery and fundraising process. Anti-corruption education is aimed at strengthening citizenship and public awareness of youth, diminishing social exclusion, encouraging the society to contribute to public administration and public activities.
