SDI relies on support and solidarity from individuals and organisations around the world to ensure that it can bring the voices of the most marginalised to the fore. Individuals and organisations are encouraged to download, read and publicise our publications.
Holding an advocacy or solidarity event on any of SDI’s campaign priorities is an excellent way to increase awareness of the challenges faced by grassroots communities in Liberia, show solidarity and contribute to our advocacy efforts. Let us know if your group or organisation is advocating on an issue related to SDI’s programmes. We would be glad to support it and include it on our website’s news section.
Interns and Volunteers
SDI also takes interns and volunteers to support specific projects. Interns have held both short and long-term positions and have provided assistance across a broad range of programme activities such as carrying out research, community outreach and mobilisation, policy development and advocacy campaigns. Professionals can also volunteer remotely and provide expertise in relevant programme areas.
