Kvinna till Kvinna has supported women’s rights in Liberia since 2011 and officially opened its country office in 2011. After the women’s movement played a substantial part in ending the country’s two civil wars, there was little participation from women in positions of power, businesses, or government.

Kvinna till Kvinna believes in promoting gender equality from the bottom-up, supporting women and women-led organisations as agents for change, and fostering their unity through creating safe spaces for exchange and networking.

Why we work in Liberia

Liberia has a history of violence and armed conflict. The country’s women’s movement has played a major role in establishing peace. Unfortunately, women still face challenges such as:

  • lack of women’s political representation
  • lack of education
  • extreme poverty
  • gender-based violence, including domestic abuse and female genital mutilation.
