Women NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL)

Our vision is a society in which government, politics, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of all forms of discrimination against women.

Our mission is to stop discrimination against women and promote women’s participation and empowerment through partnership at all levels of society.

The Women’s NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) was established as an organ for coordinating the activities of women organisations in Liberia in 1998. We coordinate the activities of womens organisations in Liberia and bring women together to formulate and present their independent views on government issues directly affecting women of Liberia. We have a membership of over 104 network members in the 15 political sub–divisions of Liberia. Our membership categories within the 15 counties encompass Community Based Organisation (CBOs), Faith-Based organisations and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). We are called to build the capacity of women NGOs and CBOs to promote sustainable peace and security. What we envision is a just and fair Liberian society where women and men equally participate in and benefit from decision- making processes at all levels in all areas.
