Nongprue officials tried to raise the awareness of local students about Thailand’s corruption problem with a march through the sub-district.
Administrator Teerawith Thongnok led the Sept. 26 walk from the Sawang Boriboon Wittaya School to Sutthawat Temple.
The event was organized to teach youths about awareness, values, morality and ethics, and to create discipline to prevent corruption in Nongprue Sub-district.
The goal was to teach youths not to be selfish or take advantage of others, to know what is right and wrong, and properly behave. Honesty, volunteerism, fairness, responsibility and living sufficiently were stressed.
The rally follows a government decree to teach youths to avoid corruption while growing up. Future events will be aimed at preschool, primary and secondary students.
