Closing down but it's not the end...

Thank you so much for all of your support of our women's center! For over six years, it has been the privilege of the staff team to serve some of the most vulnerable famiies in Kosovo as we have supported them to rebuild their lives and their futures after surviving violence or trafficking.

This autumn, our board and leadership team took the difficult decision to close down the center. We have seen amazing, successful transformation in the lives of many families, for which we are so thankful. However, we noticed a drop in the number of new families being referred to us from the Social Services, and after a full evaluation we learned that the law and the situation in Kosovo has changed for many reasons. For example, the emergency shelters now legally have to offer rehabilitation and reintegration programs similar to ours. We feel that it is the right time for a new chapter for our organisation. However, we will also continue to support the people we have been working with, offering psychotherapy, schooling and financial support for the first six months of their independence.

As an organisation, we will now be able to focus even more on our other project, teaching vocational skills to around 70 teenagers from difficult backgrounds who are at risk of violence. We offer training in welding, electrics, barbering, tailoring, decoration and cooking, as well as discussion groups, schooling support and family psychotherapy sessions. The transformation we see in the kids over the course is amazing!!

Thank you again for supporting our women's center. We could not have done our work without our amazing supporters! Would you now consider supporting our Vocations for the Future project? 

Have a wonderful holiday season!

From the staff and board of Operacioni i Mëkembjes
