CODRA, LCSP Launch Social Accountability Project
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, July 18 (LINA) – As part of government’s Integrated Public Financial Management Reform Project (IPFMRP), two civil society organizations, Community Development and Research Agency (CODRA), and Liberian Children’s Schooling Project (LCSP), have launched a social accountability project in Gbarnga, Bong County.

Making remarks at the ceremony at the weekend, the heads of the two implementing bodies, Lassanah Dukuly and Dr. Mogana Flomo Sr. said the project is intended to increase citizens’ participation in monitoring government’s spending in the drive to ensure transparency and accountability.

Dukuly and Flomo noted that under the project, their organizations will establish and strengthen the capacity and competence of two social accountability clubs in two educational and health districts in Bong and Nimba Counties.

The project, according to the two officials, is expected to hold stakeholder engagements in the counties aimed at mobilizing community people to get involved with social accountability.

Under the project, the Liberian Children’s Schooling Project will particularly work with vulnerable women and the physically challenged in Bong and Margibi Counties in strengthening their participation in monitoring the delivery of government services.

The “Enhancing Service Delivery, the Need for an Inclusive Participation-The Role of Communities,” project is an eight-month project sponsored by the Ministry of Finance.

Meanwhile, an official of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning Non-state Actors Secretariat, Carolyn Zoduah, has said the government remains committed to ensuring accountability in its spending of state resources.

She said the Finance Ministry will continue to work with civil society organizations and citizens in ensuring transparency and accountability in the delivery of social services.

The launch of the project was attended by civil society actors, health and education officials from Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties.
