The centre will work to offer education and information on issues such as fraud prevention and preventing conflicts of interest as well as creating a platform for people from all walks of life to participate in the fight against corruption.

The centre has established what officials are calling four key learning bases:

1, STRONG – Sufficiency Against Corruption, Prachuap Province

3. Differentiating between personal and public interests
4 MODEL STRONG which is S = Sufficiency, T = Transparent, R = Realise, O = Onward, K = Knowledge and G = Generosity

The aim is to encourage people to recognise the seriousness of corruption and to increase their proactive anti-corruption results in Prachuap Province.
