The West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) was established in 2005 and became operational in 2007.

The WACSI works throughout West Africa to contribute to building the capacity of civil society organizations in the region. Our mission is to strengthen civil society so that it is responsive, collaborative, representative, resilient, and influential through knowledge-sharing, mutual learning, connecting, and influencing.

Some of our recent projects include:

Giving for Change initiative

Re-imagining INGO’s (RINGO).

Since 2021, the WACSI joined Hive Mind and is now responsible for managing the French language version of the platform. We appreciate the opportunity to participate in the creation of this international community of practice.
