Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has
launched an interactive website, Kidsland, to promote positive values such as
integrity and honesty among children.
Positive values including honesty, fairness
and a law-abiding spirit are to be promulgated through comic strips, Gee-dor-dor
cartoons, e-games and online competitions.
The website also introduces the history of the ICAC and the definition of
corruption through a lively column.

Speaking at the website inauguration, ICAC's Director of Community Relations
Erika Hui said the commission has placed much emphasis on fostering positive
values among young people as part of the community education efforts.
In 2000, the ICAC launched a website "Teensland" designed for young people
aged 13 to 17, which now registers more than 100,000 average hits daily.
In the light of a growing number of young Internet surfers and the popularity
of "Teensland", Hui said the ICAC developed a dedicated website, "Kidsland", for
children aged six to 12.
The commission will also co-organize activities with primary schools for
students to promote anti-corruption messages.
