Bird on a Bare Branch

Attempting to fling a frail song in my little corner of the world

Free from Integrity, Rooted in Corruption August 20, 2008

Oasis is currently looking to fill five vacancies. One is to replace our finances manager who recently resigned. The other four are new positions: Child Protection Officer, Moral Education/Anti-corruption Teacher, Learning Clubs Coordinator, and Anti-corruption Assistant (so I can do my job better). These four new positions are for my team, Just Education (as in fair, with integrity, transparent, accountable, non-corrupt). Our vision is “to empower young people to make positive life choices and live up to their potential, through receiving education free from corruption, rooted in integrity and transparency.” (My emphasis)

One of the application requirements is for an applicant to submit a letter of recommendation from his or her pastor. A good idea, in theory. Until we found out that some applicants are buying letters from pastors! Perhaps we need to expand our anti-corruption training to churches?
