Our origins Established in 1988 in eastern Sierra Leone, the Network Movement for Justice and Development (NMJD) is a national human rights-oriented civil society development and advocacy organization.

NMJD works in 8 of the 12 administrative districts in Sierra Leone. Our staff is skilled in advocacy, community animation and monitoring of the impact of public services on the poor. Our advocacy work takes place from local to national, regional continental and global levels. We continue to play an important role in organizing and mobilizing CSOs, CBOs and social movements around the country into strong networks and coalitions for effective and creative engagement with strategic stakeholders at all levels.

This grant enabled NMJD to monitor 9 health, education and road infrastructure projects in Sierra Leone. The 30 selected monitors were trained in the Community Integrity Building approach, along with 30 members of the newly formed Joint Working Groups. These groups were used to discuss monitoring visits and identified issues, and try to reach a fix to problems.
