All Projects

Climate Change & Environmental Sustainability

VOSIEDA assesses climate change impacts on ecosystems, engages stakeholders to protect vulnerable natural resources, and implements field projects to conserve tropical forest, biodiversity, mangroves, and coastal ecosystems using ecosystem-based mitigation. We prioritize gender equality in natural resource management, valuing women’s unique knowledge, roles, and capacities to deliver more effective, efficient, equitable, and sustainable environmental solutions.

Food Security & Livelihoods Enhancement

Our food security and livelihood enhancement program empower smallholder farmers to transform agriculture from a lonely struggle for survival to a business enterprise capable of increasing incomes and improving food security. Moreover, we work to empower and build the capacity of rural women to ensure that gender equality in food security and environmental outcomes is realized in Liberia and the Mano River Basin region.

Women’s Empowerment & Gender Equality

Our women’s empowerment programs work in Liberia and the surrounding nations to combat violence against women and girls. We do so by fighting poverty and empowering women to take part in decision-making roles at all levels. Additionally, we encourage women to take up leadership roles while promoting their participation. We tailor our development projects to meet the varying needs of both men and women, striving for equality between them.

Governance & Social Accountability

Our Governance and Social Accountability Program aims to promote participatory, representative, and inclusive political processes and institutions, along with strong accountability of institutions and leaders to citizens and the law. We prioritize the recognition of universally recognized human rights as a means of achieving positive social progress and change. Our vision is for a fairer, more just society where all individuals can participate fully in their governments and communities. We are determined to achieve our goals and are making progress towards our mission of equitable governance and social accountability.

Media & Civic Society Strengthening

Our program strengthens media and civil society by providing technical and advisory services to grassroots institutions, women-led and women’s rights CSOs. Through capacity building, we help these organizations become more effective. We also create platforms for the private sector and non-state actors to participate in identifying and addressing development priorities at the community and national levels. Our focus is to advance freedom of information and expression and accelerate digital media so that citizens have opportunities to participate in public debates and decisions. This contributes to a subregion that is free, safe, equitable, and democratic.

Advocacy & Social Sustainability

Our focus in Liberia and the West African sub-region is on social sustainability. We collaborate with both public and private sector entities in three key areas. Firstly, through public-private partnerships, we enhance private sector innovation and ensure accountability. Secondly, we advocate for the creation of decent job opportunities, provision of basic needs, and the promotion of inclusive value chains to improve people’s lives. Lastly, we support and advocate for social sustainability through strategic social investments and public policy. We team up with businesses to make meaningful contributions to society and promote high-quality impacts.
