Challenge

68% of Kosovar women claim to have experienced domestic violence. From a country of only 2 million, police document over 1000 cases every year though it's widely recognised to be under-reported. Human-trafficking and teenage prostitution are rife. The shame and secrecy surrounding abuse make it extremely hard for women and girls to leave abusive situations. There is also a need for preventative action to stop children who have experienced violence becoming victims or abusers themselves.

Solution

O.Mekembjes supports women and girls through every step from the most broken point in their lives to becoming independent and flourishing members of society. The goal is for participants to support themselves and their children in a new life without violence. We achieve this through an intensive programme of psychotherapy and counselling, self-support groups, literacy and numeracy, vocational skills and business training and a full programme for the children of survivors.

Long-Term Impact

The sad reality is that victims of abuse and their children normally continue to be victims or become aggressors in the future. Without full rehabilitation this cycle continues generation after generation, wrecking families and destabilising society. O.Mekembjes is breaking this cycle in the lives of up to 20 individuals and their families, and restoring the next generation's hope for a better future.
