WHO WE ARE

WE ARE GBOWEE PEACE FOUNDATION

The Gbowee foundation Africa is a registered non-profit organization established in February 2012 by Nobel Laureate Leymah Gbowee under the Laws of the Republic of Liberia. The Foundation is committed to advancing the breadth of education and leadership development and removing artificial hurdles from learning pathways for youth but especially women in Liberia and Africa as a whole.

Our Founder’s personal journey from a single parent to a Global peace activist was a result of a caring community of family, friends, mentors and teachers, and a strong community of women pushing boundaries beyond what she felt capable to achieve. GPFA is the avenue through which women and youth are provided an opportunity and resources to achieve their goals, and imagine further.

VISION

GPFA”s vision is that of a peaceful, reconciled and empowered Africa that is responsible for investing in sustained individual and collective growth and development.

MISSION

Education --> Peace --> Development
