From Promises to Action: Determining Liberia’s True Agents of Change

By Alexander Redd, Th.D

Liberia, a country recovering from a long history of civil unrest and political instability, needs effective agents of change who can guide it toward sustainable development and progress. While many individuals and organizations claim to be the catalysts for change, it is important to distinguish between those who make empty promises and those who take tangible actions to bring about positive transformation. To assess and identify Liberia’s true agents of change is necessary to evaluate their track records, commitment to transparency, and impact on the ground.

One way to determine the authenticity of an agent of change is by examining their past accomplishments. Have they successfully implemented initiatives that have had a positive impact on the community or society at large? Assessing their track record helps establish their credibility and indicates their ability to follow through on their promises.

When we look at people who want to make a difference and improve things in Liberia, it’s important to see if they’ve been working hard for a long time or just started talking about it. If they’ve been consistent and dedicated, that shows they’re really serious about their cause. And if they’re open and honest about their money, that’s a good sign too. True agents of change are the real deal!

When we give money to an organization, political party, or church, or even pay our taxes to the government, it’s important to know how they use it. Do they tell us where the money goes and how it helps people? When professed leaders peddle narratives about true change, the question is whether they are open about their finances and involve people in making decisions; it makes us trust them more and feel like we’re part of the team. That way, we can ensure our donations or other support are being used for the right reasons and making a difference in the world.

The ultimate measure of an agent of change is their tangible impact on the ground. Are their initiatives improving living conditions, educational opportunities, healthcare access, or economic development? Assessing the actual outcomes of their efforts helps determine their effectiveness as agents of change. It is important to evaluate whether the change brought about by these agents is sustainable in the long run. Are their initiatives designed to empower and enable the community to progress independently? The sustainable change ensures that the progress achieved is not temporary but has a lasting impact.

Identifying Liberia’s true agents of change requires a thorough assessment of their track record, commitment to transparency, and impact on the ground. Examining these factors makes it possible to distinguish between those who merely make promises and those who actively work toward positive transformation. Liberia needs genuine agents of change who can spearhead the country’s journey toward sustainable development and progress.
