Solo Sandeng Foundation is a non-profit and non-partisan organization that works towards justice through socio-political advocacy and engagement. Founded in 2017, the organization derived inspiration from the life and values of its eponym, Ebrima Solo Sandeng. Solo Sandeng was a political activist whose work leading a peaceful protests for electoral reforms in The Gambia, and his resulting death while held in an NIA torture center, was a catalyst for the reconstitution of the country.
The foundation advocates for law and social reforms through civic education, documentation and citizens engagement. The Solo Sandeng Foundation works in support of the Gambia’s transitional justice process as a victim-led organization by advancing the welfare needs of victims of the dictatorial regime. It also advocates for security sector reforms by initiating dialogue between government, policy makers and the citizenry. Similar approaches are taken by the foundation towards achieving electoral reforms and transitional justice across various sectors of Gambian society.
