    Community Scorecard Report Validation Dialogue

    News & Articles / May 27, 2020

    Campaign For Good Governance (CGG) has engaged with community stakeholders in the validation of a scorecard which was develop by CGG and executed by network partners…

    Community-based organizations, religious and traditional stakeholders, and youth in the Western Rural and Urban Area were engaged by Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) on, “building an active civil society for improved gender-responsive public service delivery especially for women and girls to attain sustainable development in the country.” The community engagement brought together youth campaigners from Brookfields, Calaba town, Waterloo, Dworzack, and Joe Town, among others. Haja Ya Alimamy Sesay, one of the tribal heads for Mayenkeneh, in Calaba Town, said they have been working closely with all stakeholders but expressed that since this government came to power she is yet to attend any meeting organized by their Councilor. She said they are not aware of any council activities stating that the link between them and local government is their councilor but with all her efforts the political figure is not showing any commitment. Chief Mohamed Alpha Sogbeh Turay, from Brookfields, said they had two wards in the community Ward 432 and 433 and their councilors have been doing well in terms of one-on-one engagements but they are not holding Ward Committee meetings. He said the only way development can reach at that level is when regular meetings are held thereby ensuring issues affecting their communities will be highlighted for the attention of the council. Alusine K. Kargbo from Brookfields said many a time the youth are left out in almost all activities in their community by politicians especially their councilor. The only time they call them is for labour. He said they are not aware of how to hold their politicians accountable because they are being neglected. The project leader for CGG, Victor Graffe, said they are implementing a European Union-funded project aimed at building the capacity of youth and building an active civil society for improved gender-responsive public service delivery. He said the decision was as a result of findings from the community scorecard that highlighted non-participation of youth, persons with disability, women, and girls in key decision making processes in communities.
