To able to transform the world or the society making a meaningful difference is one of the biggest motivations and goals of many leaders across the globe. However, face the challenges that those changes require does not seem to be an easy task especially if the awareness towards a specific issue and its relevance is null or very scarce. One of the biggest challenges that societies have had to face for many years is Corruption. Many countries with rising economies suffer from a high level of corruption that slows their overall development. The whole of society is affected as a result of the inefficient allocation of resources, the presence of a shadow economy, and low-quality education and aid. Corruption, therefore, makes these societies worse off and lowers the living standards of most of their populations Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index in (2017) Such is the case of Colombia.
