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 organizations in Liberia in 1998. We coordinate the activities of womens organizations 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 Organization (CBOs), Faith-Based organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations (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.


WONGOSOL seeks to consolidate maximum utilization of resources of women organizations through cooperation in order to improve efficiency and to avoid duplication of efforts. The objectives are as follows:

  • To offer solidarity to gender and human rights organizations while at the same time honoring individual members activities.
  • To coordinate and strengthen links among NGOs, between members and the Government and donor agencies.
  • To stimulate, collect and disseminate information which will encourage and facilitate member NGOs in their efforts.
  • To establish training programs for member organizations when the need arises.
  • To develop cooperation with other bodies throughout the world having similar aims.
  • To be the voice and pressure group for member organizations on gender and development issues.
  • Maintain a database for all women organizations where national and international community can gather information.
