BRAC Sierra Leone has been awarded “The Most Outstanding NGO of the year – 2018,” by a consortium of national and international organisations (Council of Chief Executives in Sierra Leone, EcoMedia Corporation, Africa Media Corporation, Institute for Public Affairs and Good Governance, and the African Consulting group).
Since its inception in 2008, BRAC Sierra Leone has proved to be one of the leading international development organisations operating in Sierra Leone. The award comes in recognition of of the organisation’s demonstrated support and commitment through professional services, best practices, dynamic programmatic interventions, innovation, effectiveness, and sound principles.
Rakibul Bari Khan, Country Representative of BRAC Sierra Leone, described the award as a great honour and recognition of BRAC’s support towards the development of Sierra Leone. “The recognition is a reminder of what we are, and as an organisation, I must say, this is very overwhelming, timely, and useful. We intend to use this award to reaffirm our commitments to the government and the people of Sierra Leone,” he said.
Peter Sasellu, Chairman of the Council of Executives, described BRAC as an organisation that has presence and significant impact in most, if not all the districts in Sierra Leone. “I came to know about BRAC when I was in Liberia. BRAC has impacted the lives of millions of people in the African and Asian continent. It is one of the NGOs that I’m really proud of; their impact in the lives of our community’s people is very outstanding,” he added.
