WACSI has strengthened its Research and Documentation Unit with the recruitment of a seasoned West African researcher to lead in the implementation of activities under the unit.
Ms. Titilope Ajayi-Mamatteh, Nigerian, commenced work as WACSI’s Research and Documentation Officer on October 1, 2012.
In her first week in office, she expresses her satisfaction with the working attitude of colleagues at WACSI. This environment is a motivating factor that spurs her to do what she likes doing and has done for some years now, that is, research. “I was told and I have seen that WACSI is a dynamic organisation that is doing something important in the sub-region”, she noted.
She expresses her commitment to work with the dynamic and focused team at the Institute. “I will work with other colleagues to raise the profile of WACSI by fulfilling its mandate to build the capacity of civil society to influence lasting social change in West Africa”, she pointed out.
She commits to contribute in enabling WACSI to provide better access to a broad scope of information that could enhance the work of civil society in West Africa. “This will be achieved by providing targeted capacity building training programmes based on identified needs to make these programmes to be relevant and useful to our constituents”, she earmarked, and stressed that, in this position, she will promote the exchange of knowledge, information and expertise through a research information network.
She brings eight years’ research and editing experience to her position as WACSI Research and Documentation Officer. Her recent appointments include research positions at the International Crisis Group in Dakar and the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre in Ghana.
WACSI, a leading capacity building Institute in West Africa was created by OSIWA in 2007 to strengthen the institutional and operational skills of civil society organisations in West Africa. The Institute strives to achieve this by providing trainings, mentoring and coaching, policy advocacy and through research to seek answers to the vital questions that would strengthen the capacity building and policy advocacy initiatives led by the Institute.
