Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA)
OSIWA works towards the creation of open societies in West Africa. It is part of the global network of Open Society Foundations. We seek to promote inclusive democratic governance, transparent and accountable institutions and active citizenship in West Africa. The Liberia program is currently supporting post-Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) transitional justice initiatives implemented by the Transitional Justice Working Group (TJWG) – a coalition of civil society groups. Among others, the project is implementing memorialization initiatives in Kpolokpala and Samay communities in Bong County. This initiative could serve as a catalyst for broader memorialization projects in other parts of the country. This will help communities to collectively remember massacre victims during the Liberian civil crisis.
