Challenge

Since the UN intervened in 1999, Kosovo has resolved to stop the violence between Serbians and Albanians, the conflict has become an International concern. As movement is made to once and for all end the conflict, but it is necessary for women's voices to be heard - as they are the strength that has kept families and communities together. We intend on ensuring that their voices are heard, and that those voices are educated and strong.

Solution

The voices of women in Kosovo has been hushed for hundreds of years - however, we aim to give these women an education, a skills trade, and a voice in which to make their opinions known and help rehabilitate their country.

Long-Term Impact

As the UN continues to resolve the conflicts in Kosovo, ensuring that women have a voice and a contribution is vital. Through education, skills training, and trama counseling we offer these women that voice and help them find the strength to use it.
