The Program Director of TrustAfrica, Dr. Bhekinkosi Moyo, is expected in the country today on a one-day assessment visit to Liberia. During the course of the visit, Dr. Moyo is expected to meet with various partners that are receiving support from TrustAfrica in order to gain an appreciation of the level of gains partners have made, their attendant challenges as well as ascertain potential entry points as TrustAfrica begins preparation for the second phase of the Liberia program. Dr. Moyo, who is a Zimbabwean national, has extensive expertise in philanthropy, civil society and governance in Africa. He previously worked with the Africa Institute in South Africa and also the Institute for Democracy In South Africa (IDASA).

Dr. Moyo has written and published more than 15 conference papers, journal articles and book chapters and produced his latest collection of edited articles, Africa in the Global Powerplay: Debates, Challenges and Potential Reforms (Adonis & Abbey, London) in 2007. Speaking to TrustAfrica’s Program Officer for Liberia, Mr. Kanio Bai Gbala, he opined that “the visit of Dr. Moyo is very critical as it coincides with TrustAfrica’s two years of operations in Liberia and intimates that post-conflict Liberia still remains a priority area for multi-lateral donors as she slowly progresses towards elections in 2011.”

TrustAfrica is a pan-African foundation chartered in the United States but based in Dakar, Senegal. TrustAfrica works to ensure that the environment for equitable development and good governance takes root in Africa through the provision of grants to selected media entities, civil society organizations, independent think-tanks and universities to research and engage with various socio-political and economic issues affecting Africans. In Liberia, for over two years TrustAfrica through a partnership with Humanity United has supported a cohort of 14 leading civil society organizations. A few of which are  the West African Network for Peace building (WANEP), the Liberia Democratic Institute (LDI), the Liberia Media Center (LMC) and also the Press Union of Liberia (PUL).
