West Africa Civil Society Institute Strengthening Civil Society


WACSI Inaugural Workshop

The inaugural workshop of the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) was held in Accra, Ghana from the 24th to the 25th of November 2006.

Bringing together a total number of 35 participants and resource persons drawn from the various West African countries, the WACSI launch event offered a forum for the frank discussion of West African civil society actors on the operationalisation of WACSI.

The participants were largely drawn from among members of government, academics, NGOs and CSOs from all the countries in the West African sub-region.

Resource Centre

The Institute has a resource centre that is open to civil society actors in the region. It serves as a library of civil society documents, research reports and edited volumes that are accessible to both individuals and organisations. The Institute has partnered the Foundation Centre to provide online learning resources and a database of grant giving institutions in the United States of America.
