Integrity Idol Screening: South Africa Finalists

Integrity Idol is an innovative global campaign run by citizens in search of honest public servants.

Integrity Idol began in Nepal in 2014, spread to Liberia in 2015 and has now evolved into a global campaign that is currently in 6 countries and has been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide.

Over the last year, Accountability Lab ran the first ever Integrity Idol Campaign in South Africa. After nominations were received from all of the country and nominees were thoroughly vetted, we are now in the final stage of the campaign where citizens get to vote for their favorite honest public official from 5 finalists.

There is no better way to get a feel for Integrity Idol than by viewing it firsthand, so bring your lunch and join us for a casual screening of 5 short films (about 5 min each) highlighting the work of the current Integrity Idol South Africa finalists. 

Cheri-Leigh Erasmus serves at the Accountability Lab's Programs and Learning Manager and will facilitate this event. She's a spent a decade in the higher education and nonprofit management arenas in South Africa and the US. The Accountability Lab supports change-makers to develop and implement positive ideas for integrity in their communities, unleashing positive social and economic change.
