The Women NGOs Secretariat of Liberia was started as an organ for coordinating the activities of women organizations and groups in the country in 1998. The vision of WONGOSOL is to achieve a just and fair Liberian society where women and men equally participate in and benefit from decision-making processes at all levels.
WONGOSOL is an umbrella organization with over 51 members. It works to coordinate the activities of women’s organizations and groups in Liberia and brings women together to formulate and present their independent views on government issues and other political and socio-economic issues directly affecting Liberian women and other disadvantaged groups. WONGOSOL also advocates and lobbies the legislature and the government to design and implement gender sensitive plans, programmes and policies in peace building and national recovery and development. The organization maintains a database for all women organizations and groups where national entities and the international community can gather information on non-governmental women’s organizations in the country. It also builds the capacity of women’s organizations and other stakeholders to improve effectiveness and efficiency.
