PartnersGlobal’s work in Africa focuses on bringing together local leaders in government, civil society, business, and the security sector to jointly find solutions to their most pressing social development and governance challenges.

We proactively build partnerships that give PartnersGlobal access to the highest level of decision-makers, while maintaining close ties and legitimacy with civil society, including women’s organizations and youth leaders.

These powerful linkages are activated to collaboratively tackle:

  • security sector reform
  • community policing
  • the justice sector
  • government accountability and transparency
  • social entrepreneurship
  • and the effectiveness and integrity of civil society

Local Partners

PartnersGlobal works closely with our two Network members in the region: Partners West Africa-Senegal and Partners West Africa-Nigeria. Together, we collaborate to provide regional and country-based programming throughout Anglophone and Francophone West Africa. PartnersGlobal has cultivated many partnerships with local partners in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Mauritania, Côte d’Ivoire, and Liberia.
