ACODEL's economic development programs focus on creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive and fostering inclusive growth. Some of the key economic development programs include:

  1. Infrastructure Development: We works with local governments and communities to improve infrastructure, such as roads, markets, and water systems, to facilitate trade and economic growth.
  2. Business Development Services: We provides support to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by offering technical assistance, access to finance, and market linkages. This helps SMEs to grow, create jobs, and contribute to the overall economic development of the country.
  3. Value Chain Development: We focuses on strengthening value chains in various sectors, such as agriculture, fisheries, and handicrafts, to enhance productivity, competitiveness, and income generation.
  4. Private Sector Engagement: We collaborates with the private sector to create partnerships that promote economic growth and job creation. This includes facilitating investments, promoting public-private partnerships, and providing capacity-building support to local businesses.

ACODEL plays a vital role in promoting livelihood and economic development in Liberia. Through its various programs and initiatives, we aims to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities by empowering them with the skills, resources, and opportunities needed to generate sustainable income and contribute to the overall development of the country. 

One of the key advocacy programs undertaken by ACODEL is focused on promoting human rights. This program aims to raise awareness about human rights issues, advocate for the protection of human rights, and ensure that individuals have access to justice. We works closely with local communities, civil society organizations, and government bodies to address human rights violations and promote a culture of respect for human rights in Liberia.

Another important aspect of ACODEL’s advocacy work is centered around gender equality and women’s empowerment. The organization believes in the equal rights and opportunities for women and girls in all spheres of life. We  advocates for gender-responsive policies, laws, and practices that promote gender equality and empower women economically, socially, and politically. 

Through awareness campaigns, capacity building initiatives, and collaboration with stakeholders, we strives to eliminate gender-based discrimination and violence. We also engages in advocacy efforts aimed at promoting social justice and inclusive development. The organization works towards ensuring that marginalized groups such as persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and refugees have equal access to resources, services, and opportunities. ACODEL advocates for policies that address inequalities, discrimination, and social exclusion, with the goal of creating a more just and inclusive society.

Social Justice Programs

In addition to its advocacy programs, we implements various social justice programs that aim to address systemic issues and promote sustainable development in Liberia. 

One of the key areas of focus for ACODEL’s social justice programs is education. We recognizes the vital role education plays in empowering individuals and communities. We works towards improving access to quality education for all, especially for disadvantaged and marginalized groups. 

We advocates for inclusive education policies, supports the establishment of community schools, and provides educational resources and scholarships to vulnerable children and youth. we also places a strong emphasis on economic empowerment as a means to achieve social justice. We implements programs that promote entrepreneurship, vocational training, and job placement for marginalized individuals. By equipping people with skills and opportunities to generate income, we aims to reduce poverty, inequality, and social exclusion.

Furthermore, we recognizes the importance of environmental justice in achieving sustainable development. We advocates for responsible natural resource management, sustainable agriculture practices, and climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. We raises awareness about environmental issues and works towards ensuring that communities have a voice in decision-making processes that affect their environment.

Through its advocacy and social justice programs, ACODEL strives to create positive change in Liberia by addressing human rights violations, promoting gender equality, advocating for social justice, improving access to education, empowering individuals economically, and promoting environmental sustainability.
