We bring this commitment to life through our Values, our Code of Professional Conduct, and our policies and practices related to the environment, our supply chain, our people, and our professional standards.
We hold our suppliers to the same high standards of social responsibility that we hold ourselves.

TACKLING LOCAL SOCIAL CHALLENGES THROUGH AMAKA CONSULTING-OWNED NONPROFITS
SUPPORTING LOCAL NONPROFITS IN THE US AND WEST AFRICA
With the goal of helping individuals, schools, and communities to empower and lift economically disadvantaged children, Amaka provided volunteer recruitment and management training, and capacity development services to ACENY. We provided technical guidance on building a more strategic, positive volunteer experience and cultivating long-term, mutually beneficial supporter relationships to educate hundreds of children in Liberia's hinterlands.
Most of the clients that share similar corporate social responsibility goals as ours work together with us in addressing various community issues in settings. There are a number of community challenges, often involving complex human-environment systems, that are not fully understood and for which solutions are urgently required.
Funding and Foundation
Alignment Research & Analysis
There are no shortcuts to finding the right funding source and nothing can replace thorough research. Here's where Amaka Consulting supported Women Aid, Inc, a woman-owned nonprofit based in Monrovia, Liberia. We looked beyond the obvious funders to find a wider group of prospects and created a campaign for strong community support before seeking funding outside the community to support the agency's mission to serve women and children victims of domestic violence.
Project Design, Preparation
& Implementation Strategy
Through a series of pro bono engagements, Amaka Consulting designed a project for an Australia-based multinational nonprofit institution, the National Action Group (NAG) with offices in the United States and Europe. The project was centered on providing rehabilitative, counseling, and reintegration services to ex-fighters of the 14-year Liberian civil war.
