3D first emerged as a programme within the Enda GRAF-SAHEL network and was established as an independent organisation in 2008. Defining itself as both an expert and militant organisation, 3D aims to contribute to the social, economic and political transformation of Senegal, working closely with communities and local actors to support them in taking full part in this transformation process and influencing decisions affecting them. ONG 3D now implements programmes in three main strands: democracy and local governance, human rights and sustainable local development.
In 2017, with PeaceNexus’ OD support, 3D succeeded in developing its new 2018-2022 strategic plan through a participatory process supported by an external consultant. The new strategy sets an ambitious vision for the organisation, notably through its expansion at the regional level. 3D has also established a fully-fledged internal communication department and has used a proactive communication approach towards the public to generate a more inclusive debate on governance and policy matters in Senegal.
“One of our greatest achievements from the collaboration with PeaceNexus has been the participatory and inclusive elaboration of our new 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, and its related operational plan. The main results from this process are a refined vision and mission for ONG 3D as well as the confirmation of our ambition to extend our action at the West African sub-regional level. After about two years of collaboration, we feel very much impacted by PeaceNexus’ partnership approach. Beyond financial support, it is characterised by their investment in close accompaniment and coaching”.
