Kvinna till Kvinna supports women’s rights organisations in the Western Balkans. We have offices in Belgrade, Kyiv, Pristina, Sarajevo and Skopje.

The region provides a tough context: it is marred by rising nationalism, corruption and low public trust. Speaking up here can be dangerous: many activists face violent opposition.

Together with our partners, we prevent gender-based violence and support victims and survivors. We advocate for peace, reconciliation and minority rights. We work to ensure gender mainstreaming is part of countries’ road to EU membership.

Where we work in Europe

"Supporting a strong and independent women's movement is a wise investment in a peaceful and democratic future for the Balkans."

– Ristin Thomasson, Regional Manager for the Western Balkan
