(www.elbcradio.com/May 30, 2015)-The Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) is calling on Liberian women to develop keen interest in identifying their rights to land ownership in Liberia because Land Rights issues are also   women rights.

The  Country Officer of OSIWA , Massa Crayton said: “Now is the time to let you know from communities to communities that the issues of Land Rights are also women rights because women are one of the proper owner of the land”.

She cautioned them to identify their rights, first as Liberian and then as human beings so as to use that rights and improve upon their children’s livelihood and economic conditions for peace living.

OSIWA is a foundation operating in ten countries in West Africa and dedicated to opening opportunities in enhancing good governance, economic conditions, human rights and health among others.
In Liberia, OSIWA is one of the major sponsors of education and awareness on land rights and ownership issues.

OSSIWA’s partnership with Liberian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), including Rights and Rice Foundation (RRF) and Sustainable Development Institution(SDI) among others are   reaching out and engaging Liberians to identify their rights and to understand the importance of land issues.
