At LSA, we believe that unity, peace, hope, compassion, and empathy are essential to building a strong and vibrant community. We strive to create an environment of mutual respect, understanding, and collaboration between our members, encouraging them to work together to create a better Liberian community in Sweden. We are committed to promoting peace, cultivating empathy, and nurturing hope by providing resources, support, and education to our members. As time gets tough, we find ways to reach out and support one another, even if it means going beyond our comfort zone. We strive to create a better community now, to ensure a better LSA for our kids and Liberians wishing to migrate to Sweden in the future. We believe that when we come together with a shared goal of creating a better community, we can achieve great things and make a positive difference in our communities across Sweden and Liberia. Together, we are stronger. Our community matters!
Who We Are
The Liberian Swedish Association commonly referred to as LSA is a legally registered civil, non-profitable organization in Sweden, with headquarter in Stockholm. It is a Liberian community-based organization that serves as the umbrella organization for ALL Liberians residing in Sweden, as well as descendants of Liberia, Swedes, and friends of Liberia that have once worked and lived in Liberia. The Liberian Swedish Association consists of four main branches; LSA Stockholm (Head Branch), LSA Mälmö (Sub-Branch), LSA Goteborg (Sub-Branch), and LSA Norrland (Sub-Branch).
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 have lived in Liberia.
"Our Community Matters!"
LSA's motto and commonly use slogan entail that LSA community members and supporters are always at the forefront of LSA's agenda and deeds.
Our Kids Are Our
Our community kids are precious jewels who play important roles in the affairs of LSA. They are our future leaders, and it is our job to nurture them and help them reach their full potential. We strive to provide support and resources for our kids so that they can participate in activities that help them grow, learn, and develop socially while learning the importance of LSA to their future in Sweden.
The Liberian Swedish Association (LSA) official logo (above) represents the mark or identity of the Association. As depicted above, it has upper and lower sections. The upper section represents the Liberian national flag and the lower section represents the Swedish national flag which symbolizes both nations that LSA represents. The design is closer to the minimalistic Scandinavian design, which entails that "the less design the better it is to get the point through".
Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
