Who Are Anti Corruption International?

ACI Berlin Launch | Anti Corruption International


Following an international student festival in Trondheim (Norway), Anti-Corruption International was founded in March 2015 by young people who wanted to give themselves and their fellow youth a role in the fight against corruption.

Anti-Corruption International is registered in Dublin, Ireland and represents thousands of members worldwide. We are the largest youth-focused and globally present anti-corruption organisation in the world and we continue to bring in new members with our aim of sending waves of change through our campaigns and projects. Our initiatives are shaped and executed by our members together with various partners and collaborators.

We are proud to have come a long way and we intend to continue to bring together young people to serve as key changemakers in our interest towards building a corruption-free world. We invite you to stand with us in this fight to eradicate corruption.

 ACI is in fact a proof that changes may happen, especially when people are led by strong spirit and persistence for improvement. Coming from a small country, motivates me even more to contribute to creating fair and transparent societies..”

With ACI we have a real chance to deliver change in the future, A future where corruption won’t be silently accept but loudly condemned

ACI has given me the platform to not only express my experiences of corruption but more importantly to redefine what it means with youth around the world.

Hossam Hassan Gadou

Executive Director for Internal Relations.

I believe that, youth of today are facing many challenges, some are concerned with the environment, some are concerned with health, some are concerned with poverty, some are concerned with education, and some are concerned with technology, but at Anti-corruption International we are challenging corruption.  Which in many cases is affiliated with all that I have mentioned, I understand, it was never easy, it never has been and it never will be easy to fight corruption, and challenge those who benefit from corruption. But I believe if we work together towards a corruption free world, one day we will reach our goal.

Benjamin Wheatland

Executive Director for External Relations

Corruption affects all of us, and it is up to us all to help put an end to it. ACI offers a vital, unified voice for young people at a time when it is needed most

Africa is one of the regions most plagued by corruption and a region where the link between corruption and African society and the economies of African states are so intertwined that they are almost indistinguishable, The question remains, Will you join us?

We, the youth, will turn our ancestors’ wish to live in a world free of corruption into a reality. » A zealous claim of a bunch of unrealistic young dreamers, it may sound. For those who think we are mad, we can assure them that through our actions we will show that not to be the case.
