Who we are?

Mission Statement

Our mission is to make democracy work for the people of Liberia understanding the interdependence between economic empowerment and democratic participation of citizens as the surest way to promote sustainable democratic debates and dialogue gear towards building a functioning state. We are doing so through the seven (7) various initiatives below:

Coexistence and peace are two fundamental pillars of a just and equitable society. However, achieving them is not an easy task, as conflicts and tensions often arise due to differences in race, ethnicity, religion, culture, and ideology. Our programs and activities help people in live in harmony and peace, they can work together to address social, economic, and environmental challenges facing their communities. This cooperation can lead to the creation of jobs, access to education and healthcare, and the improvement of living standards. In contrast, when conflicts and tensions persist, they can hinder progress and exacerbate poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.

Promoting coexistence and peace is critical to our mission because it enhances social cohesion and strengthens democracy. When people from diverse backgrounds can live together peacefully, they develop mutual respect, understanding, and tolerance for each other’s differences. This tolerance and respect translate into stronger democratic institutions that can better address the needs and interests of all citizens, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, or social status.

Democratic elections are a cornerstone of a functioning democracy. They provide citizens with a voice and a choice in selecting their leaders and holding them accountable. In West Africa, where democracy is still fragile, democratic elections are critical for promoting stability, peace, and development. It is vital for us in supporting democratic elections in West Africa by, election monitoring, and civic engagement.

One of the key roles of  IREDD in promoting democratic elections in West Africa is to provide elections awareness messages and engage elections bodies to ensure that elections are free and fair. Many citizens in the region are illiterate and may not fully understand the democratic process or their rights as voters. IREDD have organized workshops, seminars, and training programs that help citizens understand the importance of their vote and how to exercise it. These programs can also help citizens understand the consequences of choosing leaders who do not have their best interests at heart.

National elections are the cornerstone of democracy. They provide citizens with the opportunity to choose their leaders and hold them accountable for their actions. However, the conduct of national elections is not always free and fair. There may be issues such as voter intimidation, election fraud, or media bias that can undermine the legitimacy of the electoral process. In this context, IREDD plays a crucial role in monitoring national elections as a member of the Elections Coordinating Committee in Liberia to ensure that they are conducted fairly and transparently.
