About CGG

Organisation Profile

Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) is a registered national non-government organisation (NGO) advocating for good governance in Sierra Leone. Leaders of the pro-democracy movement formed CGG in 1996 after the first multi-party elections in three decades.

 

Mission Statement

CGG exists to increase citizen participation in governance through advocacy, capacity building and civic education in order to build a more informed civil populace and a democratic State.

CGG works with key partners including international NGOs and government departments such as the police to effectively deliver programs; and belongs to several associations and research communities. This strong network and a long history of successful campaigns have given CGG an excellent reputation as one of Sierra Leone’s finest NGOs.

CGG currently has project officers covering all 14 districts of Sierra Leone and staff members working from the office Headquarters in Freetown. CGG’s structure includes the Programs, Finance and Administration divisions, and is governed by a board of directors.

CGG specializes in issues of Decentralization and Local Governance, Democratic Participation, Corruption, Human Rights, Gender, Peace-building, Poverty Reduction Strategy, and Budgeting. CGG also has vast experience in conducting scientific research, opinion polls on developmental issues, and analysis of policies.

Internships

As part of CGG's efforts to give individuals the opportunity to work in the development and advocacy arena, the organisation offers non- remunerated internships to university and college students and even graduates both nationally and internationally.
