To mark International Anti-Corruption Day, CAS hosts the London launch of Gbagba, an anti-corruption primer for children written by SOAS Ph.D. student and Liberian writer Robtel Neajai Pailey.
Gbagba follows a few days in the life of Liberian twins, Sundaymah and Sundaygar, who leave their hometown of Buchanan to visit their aunt in Monrovia, Liberia's capital. Previously launched in Monrovia and Washington, D.C., Gbagba explores issues of integrity, accountability, and corruption through a beautifully illustrated children’s narrative.
