Foday Swarray hands plans over to the Education Officer of the Freetown City Council
ActionAid International Sierra Leone’s commitment to transparency, accountability, and to sharing information with poor and marginalized people, their organizations and partners we work with, our staff, donors and host governments/local government remains undiminished. We also commit ourselves to informing citizens how much money we have available for development work, what areas we intend to focus on and how that is being used.
Recently Western Area, Bombali, Tonkolili and Kono DAS held meetings with their respective City Councils in to share activity plans for 2011.
This is a core organisational requirement emphasised in our Accountability Learning & Planning Systems (ALPS) which is designed to deepen our accountabilityto all our stakeholders, particularly to the poor and excluded people with whom we work.
The approved plans for 2011 presented to the council by the DA Managers consist of the thematic areas of focus, activities as per themes, cost for each activity, communities to benefit from the interventions, partners who will implement the various activities and timeline for implementation. The presentations also mentioned why we chose to work in certain communities our working approaches and partners we work with.
