Paperwork Accomplished!

This is to certify that Robertsport Community Works is now an officially registered NGO with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Planning in Liberia. Getting through this process is neither easy nor transparent. We are tremendously grateful to Alfred Brownell and his team at the Green Advocates for rising to meet this challenge. In the midst of an exceptionally busy schedule and in between bouts of fighting to hold Liberia's extractive industries to the highest global standards, Alfred and his team followed our documents around the ministry, week after week, month after month until the job was done.

Now that we've registered, we can move forward with several applications for support and funding along with our research and plans for setting up a precedent setting conservation easement on the land in Robertsport.

  1. This is fantastic news! Well done to all of you for staying the course. As you said, with this under your belt we can start to seek external support and funding as well as moving forward with the pioneering land easement project.

    Keep paddling forward!
