Youth Education Campaign: Say no to Money Politics! in 2014 Elections
The USAID-funded Management Systems International (MSI) / Strengthening Integrity and Accountability Program I (SIAP I) aims to contribute to good governance in Indonesia by strengthening integrity and accountability in government principally at the national level. It will do this by supporting governmental and non-governmental efforts to strengthen the effectiveness of accountability bodies; external monitoring; and mobilizing public support
Currently, MSI SIAP1 is seeking grant applications for Youth Education Campaign: Say no to Money Politics! in 2014 Elections program.
During the three last elections, young voters have represented a significant and growing number of the voting population. In the 2004 election, young voters accounted for 18% of the voting population. In 2009, young voters represented 21% of all voters, and it is estimated that even greater numbers of youth will participate in the upcoming 2014 elections.
The main objective for this grant is to educate young voters on the damaging effects of money politics practices during the campaign process, and vote buying that often occurs on voting days. This grant aims to help create a youth movement that calls for better transparency, accountability and integrity in the upcoming elections in 2014 (legislative and presidential elections).
