Kosova-Women 4 Women

Kosova-Women 4 Women (KW4W) is a Kosovar registered NGO built on the foundation laid down by Women for Women International (WfWI).  Our mission is to support the most marginalized women in Kosovo to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, women will be able to create sustainable change for herself, her family, and community. KW4W provides basic civic education as part of its social empowerment curriculum, tackling among other issues, democratization from the perspective of participation in community activities, advocacy and lobbying. As part of the economic empowerment women gain business and technical skills in different vocations, that are based on the market needs. We also work with men, in terms of their education on different topics that relate to family and women’s rights. Over the years the organization has created various partnerships with local non-governmental organizations and relevant stakeholders. Main partner of KW4W remains Women for Women International.
