Find National NGO expertise in Sierra Leone
The Sierra Leone Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (SLANGO) is the country’s recognised NGO umbrella body. Its primary objective is to integrate NGO efforts more effectively and to develop a framework within which NGOs can collaborate, and support mutually beneficial activities more effectively. Other NGOs that are operational include the Campaign for Good Governance and the Community Action Support Organization for Poverty Alleviation. Much of the work of civil society to date has been focused on rebuilding shattered societies coming out of the war. Special attention has been paid by many non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to the needs of women and children. NGOs wanting formal recognition from the Government of Sierra Leone should apply to the Ministry of Development and Economic Planning (MODEP). MODEP is mandated by the Government to co-ordinate and monitor the activities of national and international NGOs.
