The West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) has urged non-profit organisations to reduce dependence on funding from foreign governments and institutional donors to strategic financing of their projects.
Ms Nana Afadzinu, Executive Director, WACSI, made this appeal during the West Africa Civil Society Week on Thursday in Lagos.
The WACSI director said this during a panel discussion titled, “Reimagining the Role of Civil Society in a Closed Civic Space in West Africa: Policy, Capacity, Tools, and Resources for the Future”.
Afadzinu urged Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to develop sustainable strategies that would provide them with more funding for injection into response to social issues.
