Report This Organization

The Accountability Lab is an incubator for the world’s most creative accountability ideas. The team works with innovative people and organizations in Liberia to develop tools- and the communities around them- that can make power-holders more responsible. The Lab supports almost a dozen imaginative projects around the country, with a focus on youth and sustainability. The Lab sets a radical example of transparency and integrity within our work; and ensures that monitoring is fitted to context.

Since then I have been supporting entrepreneurs through the University of Liberia’s Business Start-Up Center Monrovia. I was crucial member of the team the organized the first Micro Medium and Small Enterprises Conference Liberia 2013.
