About Us

medica Liberia (mL), formerly medica mondiale Liberia, is a non-governmental women’s rights organization working in Liberia. As part of our core mandate, we deal with women and girls affected by Gender-Based Violence. A key component of our work is the provision of direct services to survivors of Sexual Gender-Based Violence (SGBV).  

Since 2006, medica Liberia has been implementing programs for women and girls in Liberia’s south-eastern parts. Currently, our work cuts across our operational communities in four counties: Sinoe, Rivergee, Grand Gedeh, Margibi, and Montserrado. 

With support from the German government, UNDP, and other donors, mL has over the years established itself as a haven for women experiencing gender-based violence and is one of the leading women’s rights organisations in Liberia.  

Women comprise 90% of the informal agricultural workforce, yet landownership by women is 48%, while male landownership is at 89%.
