    1. Haja Kaday Sesay Executive Director-Climate Change Environment & Forest Conservation Consortium Sierra Leone - CEFCON SL says:

      This Charter endures bottom level approach with an appropriate shifting of greater powers to local actors. Let’s create massive awareness on C4C and encourage NGOs to sign, endorse and fully implement the commitments.
      Let’s act now with one voice.


  1. We condemn violence from all quarters. We stand by peace loving people and and every one, every organisation or group that militates for peace. Children, young adults, the handicapped, women, the older persons have given too much of their lives victims of conflicts.
    We want protection for all and peace NOW.
    Vijay Naraidoo, Secretary-General of DIS-MOI (NGO that advocates respect of Human Rights), Mauritius.


  2. Time has come to rethink for localization in humanitarian sector, In SDGs also localisation is the priority to contribute in achieving global goals.


  3. Act now at local level with local organisation to scale and to make secured with smart service . thus UDYAMA endorse for local action


  4. This is the only charter which can ensure bottom level participation, highest level of value for money, accountability to the community, honor to the receiver, least cost for programme support action, more coverage with little resources, real planning and real humanitarian task. Hope for the real execution.


    1. CHIDDO South Sudan advises the C4C signatories to honor and implement the 8 C4C commitments without reneging on their promises they made and must remain honest and open with their C4C endorsers.


  5. We hope that under the initiatives of Charter 4 Change (C4C) the local NGOs/CSOs would get opportunity of strengthening capacity and get sharing of financial resources to participate/contribute for implementing SDGs that ensure real changes for women & children of Bangladesh as well as third world.


  6. -Access to digitalization fund at the level of area-based projects;
    -Community-led access to funding allocated only for access of those who have-nots;
    -Capability-building assistance for their participation and representation;
    -Localization fund of the total humanitarian fund, by 30% on 2030 and 50% on 2050.
    -shift the power since “the present is not equal” and ending it with “the future is equal!”


  7. The Sierra Leone Network on the Right to Food (SiLNoRF), is supporting the Charter for Change (C4C) in order for locally based organizations to be capacitated and become sustainable.
