Liberia

The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation has cooperated with women’s rights organisations in Liberia since 2007. We opened an office in the capital Monrovia in 2011 and Kvinna till Kvinna is one of the few Swedish organisations working on the ground in Liberia.

Liberia has a history of violence, armed conflict and high unemployment. Although a peace treaty was negotiated in 2003, many social problems remain. Gender-based violence including domestic violence, inadequacies in the legal system and the exclusion of women from political decision-making are particularly important women’s rights issues.

Kvinna till Kvinna supports projects that sensitise women about their human rights and aim to increase their participation in political- and economic decision-making processes.
