Reverend Oswald Canales, the CNA Coordinator stated that the idea is to force the governments to take action against the scourge of corruption, "that is why, since 2006, the National Anti-Corruption Council commemorates this commitment, to influence the authorities on the importance of taking decisive actions against corruption and in favor of the country's development.

Likewise, when giving this award to Marco Bográn, the Millennium Account-Honduras Interim Executive Director Canales said “on this occasion the anti-corruption Day will honor the work of men and institutions of great value, that is why today we give you this transparency seal “Hondurans with Courage” to the Millennium Account, for fulfilling the transparency and accountability parameters during the implementation of the projects. May this award honor the work of the Millennium Account in favor of Honduras”.

Marco Bográn, expressed his appreciation for this award on behalf of the Millennium Account officers "it is an honor for me to receive this seal on behalf of my working colleagues, because exactly five years ago when this project initiated we thought that we could implement it only with Hondurans with courage, the Millennium Account is a distinct model...it has shown that things can be done in the correct way in Honduras"

Hundreds of volunteers attended this important act, who met in the Carlos Miranda Stadium in the city of Comayagua, and where corruption in the country was condemned. Comayagua was chosen as the venue for the inauguration of this "Anti-Corruption Day 2010", which ends on December ninth, because it is the city where José Trinidad Cabañas, one of our forefathers, lived and died, and who was an example of honesty, dignity and transparency in Honduras.

Carlos Miranda, Major of the Municipality of Comayagua, Miguel Ángel Domínguez Executive Director of the CNA, and Millennium Account-Honduras staff attended the act, as well as more than four thousand young people from the city of Comayagua that presented optimist messages about the future of Honduras.
