Defence for Children International Liberia (DCI Liberia) is an independent NGO that aims to ensure on-going, practical and concerted international action is directed toward promoting and protecting children’s rights. The organisation serves as a consultant to UNESCO, ECOSOC, UNICEFand the Council of Europe, and submits intervention plans to the UN.

At the global level, the DCI Liberia movement is united in its commitment to addressing children’s rights in juvenile justice. The organisation works to protect, defend and advocate for the rights of children and young people in conflict with the law.

A member of the Child Rights Alliance in Liberia, DCI Liberia implements programmes in the Bensonville and Montserrado counties. Their girl clubs play kick ball, both practicising through training, and regular tournaments. DCI uses the Goal curriculum to empower girls to address their rights.
