CERESIO FOUNDATION FUND FOR MCRC-TRAINED ADR PRACTIONERS
Since its commencement, the Marian Conflict Resolution Centre (MCRC) has trained over 200 hundred people in all the ten regions in Ghana in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Trained mediators have been resolving conflicts through ADR Mechanism. Their cases are of two kinds: first, court-referred or court-connected cases; second, voluntary or private cases, whereby the parties take personal initiative in contacting a mediator. In some cases, private mediations are suggested by the court before opening a process. Some of the independent ADR practitioners (those who are not affiliated to any institutions), are financially constrained. These private ADR professionals trained by MCRC need financial support to promote ADR, which is one of the core aims of MCRC. Hence, MCRC decided to help these ADR professionals in their practice, specifically to support their operational cost.
The Swiss partner of MCRC, Seed, was able to obtain a donation from Fondazione del Ceresio specifically for covering mediation fees. The fund is intended to support all MCRC-trained mediators. The donor, however, put one condition on the use of the fund; it is only a matching fund. This means MCRC should spend the fund on mediation fees, only if all the actors in the ADR processes are ready to pay some commitment fees. The main aim of the fund is to promote awareness of the social and economic value of ADR professionals. The fund is intended to support all MCRC-trained mediators.
