We are thrilled to announce that Accountability Lab Liberia was chosen as the Civil Society Organization of the Year at the 2017 Liberia Development Awards. The awards ceremony, which took place on January 31, 2017, was organized by the development community in Liberia in conjunction with the first-ever Liberia Development Conference. With this recognition, we hope to set an example of transparency, innovation, and cooperation within the development community.
Speaking during the program, the United States Ambassador to Liberia, Christine Elder, lauded the honorees for living lives that provide compelling narratives about Liberia’s development potential and encouraged all Liberians to follow in the honorees’ footsteps. The USAID/Liberia Mission Director, Dr. Anthony Chan, thanked members of the organizing committee for putting together the program, which he said was meant to show-case Liberians who embody the best Liberia has to offer.
Other Liberia Development Awards were presented for exceptional work in the health, education, agricultural, and business sectors. Read more about the other incredible winners here.
