SEFAD’s Foundation Principles
SEFAD foundation’s mission is to help improve policy and decision-making through research and analysis. Enabled through our core values of quality and objectivity, we uphold our staunch commitment to the highest level of integrity and ethical behavior. It is through unbending focus on our core values and commitments that we have earned our reputation for providing rigorous, objective, nonpartisan research, and analysis. Our institutional principles set forth the foundation’s core standards for ethical behavior.
1) We avoid both the appearance and reality of conflict of interest.
2) We are committed to integrity, respect, equal opportunity, and fairness in our relationships with one another, our clients, grantors, business associates, and the public.
3) We are conscientious stewards of financial resources, property, and sensitive information.
4) We respect and comply with legal and regulatory obligations.
In 2020, the executives of Socio-Economic Freedom for Africa and Diaspora (SEFAD) established a task force to expand access to civil legal services in Sierra Leone (the Task Force) as a core component of a wider effort to increase the availability of civil legal services involving the essentials of life for low-income Sierra Leonians. The task force uses differing approaches in overcoming obstacles and move towards sustained collaboration and integration among basic innovative legal investigation, applied research, and practice for closing the Justice Gap for all. The specific objective of this initiative is to establish collaboration and new research initiatives for the 22nd century. Support and create strategic action planning to create a system that enables everyone to get access to the information and effective assistance they need, when they need it, and in a format they can use. Effective assistance contemplates a spectrum of services ranging from legal information to full representation, with full representation.
