Press releases

Mercy Corps, Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation (KTK), the Government of Liberia and the European Union have announced the launch of the four-year Support to Effective Advocacy in Liberia (SEAL) Project

The project is financed by the European Union under the 11th European Development Fund.

The goal of the project is to strengthen the individual capacities and collective efforts of Liberian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to promote good governance and a vibrant civic sector during a critical moment in the country’s development. The project will provide technical and financial inputs at key moments of selected CSOs’ organizational development while supporting gender-mainstreaming in their daily operation and work.

The SEAL will target 11 national CSOs, the National Civil Society Council of Liberia (NCSCL) and 15 Community-Based Organizations (CBOs).

The project aims at working with CSOs and CBOs in seven counties over the next 4 years. The selected counties include Montserrado, Rivercess, River Gee, Maryland, Grand Gedeh, Grand Kru and Sinoe.

The key expected results of this project will include:

  • improving the internal controls of the NCSCL and selected CSOs/CBOs;
  • strengthening the CSOs’ knowledge, skills and engagement on advocacy, policy dialogue, public sector reforms and public accountability; and
  • improving networking and coordination skills of Liberian CSOs.

The SEAL will be implemented by Mercy Corps in collaboration with Kvinna Till Kvinna (KTK) Foundation, leveraging their combined expertise in CSO engagement, governance and gender.The official launch of the SEAL Project took place on Friday, March 22, 2019 in Monrovia
