Our team

The Civil Society Institute Secretariat works out of the regional hub in Dakar, Senegal, with a team of Community Liaisons in 13 countries in West and Central Africa.

Staff come from diverse backgrounds in the region, contributing their varied experiences and skills to our work. The current team of 9 members at the Dakar secretariat, which is still growing, is committed to providing a mechanism for technical support, advocacy and regional coordination.
