About

The Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (CENTAL), the local chapter (Chapter in Formation) of Transparency International is a local not-for-profit, non-governmental, anti-corruption organization founded in May of 2004 through the insightfulness of conscious Liberians that espoused the concept of positive change and a vision for a transparent and integrity-based society. The organization is registered and accredited by the Ministry of Planning and Economic Affairs. CENTAL is overseen by a seven-member Board of Directors and administered by a secretariat headed by an Executive Director.

CENTAL works to create and strengthen a participatory social movement across all sectors of society to fight corruption, improve governance, reduce poverty, and build a culture of integrity among all peoples and institutions in Liberia.

CENTAL works in coalition with several local organizations around different thematic issues and has also worked with international organizations such as National Democratic Institute (NDI); Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), National Endowment for Democracy (NED); International Federation for Electoral System; Global Rights; Global Integrity; Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA); Trust Africa/Humanity United; Action Aid; UNDP and others.
