The Ahmad Tejan Kabbah (ATK) Foundation for Peace and Democracy is a non-profit organization that advocates for unity, peaceful coexistence, democracy, good governance, Girl Child Education, youth, and women’s empowerment”.

Ambassador Soulay Daramy furthers that “The foundation is poised about fostering a favorable environment wherein every Sierra Leonean will contribute to the growth and development nationally and internationally.

ATK Foundation for Peace and Democracy envisages a democratic, just, and peaceful society where people are empowered to fully realize their potentials”.

Meanwhile, the Chief Electoral Commissioner and ECSL Chairman, Mohamed Kenewui Konneh signed the MOU with the 9 entities on behalf of the ECSL.

The ECSL and Partners have also agreed to collaborate while performing their institutional  objectives in line with their respective mandates  and to

further promote the fundamental objective of the partnership in the areas of Governance, Human Rights, Inclusion, Civic and Electoral  Education in Sierra Leone.
