The West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI), in collaboration with Rights Co-Lab, Peace Direct and the Ringo social lab members, with support from Wilde Ganzen under the Giving for Change programme, is piloting and testing a transformative Ringo prototype: "Decolonizing Advisory Platform" to shift the INGO system and respond to the areas where the global civil society sector is stuck. The prototype seeks to establish a knowledge advisory service or centre made up of activists and advisors from the Global South who would be willing and able to offer their services to stakeholders in the Global North to ‘Decolonize’ their practice and thinking. WACSI is therefore seeking input from a wide range of actors in the Global North, to identify and map out the level of interest among INGOs for a service of this kind and to determine whether a social enterprise is a right structure for this venture.

We are in the process of adding more Ukrainian resources and information on our website, scaling up our service delivery and our online consultation is now available in Ukrainian language. Please support our work and help us continue to provide free services for Ukrainian refugees by donating.
