The Sir Anthony Siaguru Walk Against Corruption (SASWAC) is a major fundraising and awareness activity hosted by TIPNG.
Why does TIPNG host this walk?
- To raise funds for the Siaguru Endowment Fund to ensure
the future operations of TIPNG
- To raise greater awareness about corruption among
members of civil society
- To provide a peaceful avenue for citizens to express their
opposition to corruption
What happens at the walk?
Registered teams and participants assemble at the selected venue and walk a route that is roughly 4kms long. Participants dress in uniforms and have banners with anti-corruption messages. Prizes are given out for the best dressed teams and best anti-corruption messages. It is an avenue for Papua New Guineas from every sector of society to come together, as one unified group, to express our opposition to corruption and our hope for a better PNG.
How can I participate in the walk?
Invitations for participation are sent out to corporate organisations, civil society organisations and schools asking them to register a team for the walk. TIPNG has now decided to include two new categories of participation and these are Family Teams and Individuals
TIPNG is proud of the SASWAC and what it has achieved so far. Support from the City Administration (NCDC), Royal Constabulary, PNG Defence Force and the PNG Correctional Services has been critical to ensuring a peaceful and safe event for all.
