A Publication of LSA New Leadership Agenda.

Updated: Feb 23

The Nordic Africa News online magazine, on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, provided a platform for the Liberian Swedish Association (LSA) to share its agenda with millions of readers and the general public. As per the chief editor and administrator, the publication was disseminated via the Nordic Africa News Twitter and Facebook forums to reach a wider audience.

Below is a detailed insight into the agenda outlined by LSA President David Ford:

Item 1: Uniting Liberians in Sweden

The foremost objective of the LSA leadership is to foster unity and strengthen bonds among Liberians residing in Sweden. To achieve this, a decentralized leadership structure has been adopted, appointing officials from various communities across Sweden. Close connections have been established with leaders from LSA branches in Gothenburg and Malmö, with plans underway to extend this outreach to the newly proposed LSA Norrland branch. The aim is to create an inclusive Liberian community in Sweden, allowing diverse ideas to flourish for the betterment of all.

  • Micro Committees for Goal Achievement

  • Several micro-committees have been formed to facilitate the achievement of this objective:

  • Children's Affairs Committee: Organizing recreational and educational activities for children, promoting their involvement in LSA's social initiatives.

  • Conflict Resolution Committee: Addressing prevailing or potential conflicts among Liberians, fostering unity and cooperation.

  • Events Committee: Planning and organizing social events for community engagement.

  • LSA Media Committee: Handling public relations and disseminating information through various media platforms.

  • Sports Committee: Arranging sporting activities to promote health and camaraderie.

  • Outreach Committee: Reaching out to disengaged members and prospective participants to expand LSA's reach.

Item 2: Promoting Awareness

LSA is committed to raising awareness about its initiatives and activities. Efforts include the creation of informational materials such as business cards, an LSA blog, and official social media accounts. The LSA website has been revamped to cater to the informational needs of the community.

Item 3: Collaboration with Other Organizations

LSA aims to collaborate with organizations like the European Federation of Liberian Associations (EFLA) and other African and Swedish entities to promote unity and achieve common goals.

Item 4: Proposal for a Liberian Embassy in Stockholm

Recognizing the challenges faced by Liberians in Scandinavia regarding passport and visa services, LSA intends to collaborate with other Liberian communities in the region to propose the establishment of a Liberian embassy in Stockholm, Sweden.

Item 5: Humanitarian Program for Underprivileged Children

In response to the plight of underprivileged children in Liberia, LSA plans to launch a humanitarian campaign titled "Let Liberians Living in Sweden Help Underprivileged Children in Liberia" to alleviate their suffering by lobbying for funds and support.

The LSA leadership is committed to realizing these objectives for the betterment of the Liberian community in Sweden and beyond.
