Liberia: New Women Organization Launched

A new non-governmental organization targeting the welfares of underprivileged women has been launched in the country. The organization, Unique Women Organization (UWO) was launched recently at the P.A Ribs House in Monrovia. The Unique Women Organization is a non-interdenominational and non-profitable organization established as a charitable organization and opened to women no matter their status.

Speaking at the launch of the organization, the Founder and Executive Director of UWO, Madam Erica Reeves Williams said the launch of Unique Women marks the beginning of a new day in the lives of their husbands, children, communities, friends, families, neighbors among others.

Madam Williams said the dream of establishing such an organization has finally come to a reality after years of contemplating on how to begin. "You know quality begins from within so I fumbled over the ideas, change of name and by sharing of thoughts with other women, we decided to impact knowledge and give aid as Unique Women of today to make a difference," the group's Executive Director averred.

Madam Williams added, "My dream of a Unique Woman is not who you are and where you are from; but the potential that rests within you and the difference which can be made by changing the lives of volatile women and children nowadays."

According to Mrs. Elizabeth Barrolle-Dargbe, one of the Directors at the UWO, the founder of the organization, Madam Williams has been undertaking several initiatives in the past including skills training, visiting the less fortunate and sick, giving alms to the visually impaired.

"In short, picking one up, holding your hands, easing your pains so one can smile again. This organization seeks primarily to provide equal opportunities for women regardless of their status," Madam Barrolle-Dargbe pointed out.

"For this reason, we would like to engage women from all walks of life to visit us at our offices adjacent Multi TV on Camp Johnson Road, Monrovia. We say a big thanks to all of our precious attendants at this gala dinner," Madam Dargbe added.

UWO which was established on August 26, 2012 envisaged the empowerment of its members through capacity building and stands to advocate on behalf of women and children in all aspects that affects their social, moral and livelihood; writes, Morrison O.G. Sayon.
