About Us

Our Mission

The primary mission of LSA is to uphold, preserve and educate our Liberian descendants born in Sweden, through social activities such as traditional Liberian events (the Liberian culture, dance and festivities), and identify with the community members during difficult circumstances. In addition, LSA seeks to unite and foster peace, social integration and communal networking amongst Liberians and descendants of Liberia(ns) living in Sweden and Swedes who've have lived in Liberia.
