Kvinna till Kvinna supports women’s rights organisations in Ukraine and the Western Balkans. We have offices in Belgrade, Kiev, 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.
– Ristin Thomasson, Regional Manager for the Western Balkan
