Formidable Initiatives for Women and Girls (FIWG)
Formidable Initiatives for Women and Girls - Liberia, (FIWG-L) is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit organization working with young women and adolescent girls providing them opportunities to thrive as leaders in their communities. Its formulation was sparked off by the United Nations third World Conference on Women. With a few women realizing the need for an organized forum that would provide a platform for effective debate and action on issues related to the advancement of women in Liberia, FIWG-L was formed. Since inception years ago, FIWG-L has been an effective platform of debate and action on issues related to the women’s empowerment in Liberia. This has been done through consolidated advocacy for policy formulation, research, capacity building, coalition building, mobilization and sensitization as her core strategies geared towards enhancing the capacity of young girls and women in Liberia to champion the women’s cause and gender equality on the national agenda.
