    Strengthening African Civil Society Organizations

    A wide range of civil society organizations ( CSOs) are central to processes of change and positive outcomes in advancing sustainable development at local level .

    But these strong agents of change face a range of organizational challenges in their efforts to grow and sustain their impact, particularly around issues related to leadership, human resources, funding, vision and strategy, values and organizational culture.

    Today even when funders and INGOs do invest in organizational capacity development, they often fail to respond to local organizations's needs and use organization development models that are inadequate or ineffective . The actual capacity building provided by the donors is to help CSOs comply with the donors needs and requirement during the project implementation phase, and may not effectively support the long-term development needs of local organizations.

    To address this gap, The Community Leadership Institute -West Africa was established to play the role of CSOs support centre and to provide them with continuous coaching , mentoring support.

    The Community Leadership Institute - West Africa is dedicated to professional excellence and rigor and to providing an affordable, high-quality education and training  to pre-college, college, graduate, CSOs and lifelong learners.
