THE government plans to introduce ethics, as a subject, to the curriculum of all levels of education with the aim of instilling integrity among people, the Ethics Secretariat Assistant Secretary, Ms Getrude Cyriacus, has said.
Ms Cyriacus told journalists in Dar es Salaam that the secretariat was cooperating with the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training to prepare a syllabus on the subject, saying the syllabus preparation was in the final stages.She was speaking during the launch of a responsibility and morality sensitization campaign organized by a non-governmental organization -- Save the Society (StS).
The campaign is aimed at preparing better civil servants to bring positive revolution to the national economy.
Ms Cyriacus hailed the organization for embarking on a campaign of its kind, meant to rekindle ethics in people adding that the campaign will facilitate the secretariat's initiatives to encourage civil servants abide by the public leadership code of ethics.
"The national development tremendously depends on ethics as there is huge link between economic growth and ethics," noted Ms Cyriacus.StS Vice-Chairman, Mr Frank Soteri said parents have an important role in shaping their children's behaviour, saying his organization believes ideal leaders and civil servants are groomed at family level.
"We call upon parents and guardians to be ideal examples and raise the children in accordance to ethical considerations," he said.Mr Constantine Akitanda, who is the StS Patron, said the decline of ethics in the society was caused by many parents ignoring natural laws, adding that if natural laws are instilled to the people, at family level, the society would enjoy having ideal leaders.
The StS will use flyers and billboards to convey its message on the responsibility and morality sensitization campaign.
