The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation promotes women’s rights in over 20 conflict-affected countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the South Caucasus. We do so by supporting more than 130 local partner organisations across the world.
Kvinna till Kvinna’s strategic course is set by the Board, while the organisation’s daily operations are led by the secretary-general, Petra Tötterman Andorff.
Kvinna till Kvinna’s head office is located in Stockholm, where more than sixty colleagues work.
We also have 14 country offices in conflict-affected areas. In total, about fifty colleagues work at these offices, most of them nationally employed staff.
Our country offices are located in Amman, Beirut, Belgrade, Bukavu, Erbil, Jerusalem, Kiev, Kigali, Monrovia, Pristina, Sarajevo, Skopje, Tbilisi and Tunis.
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation is able to support women in conflict-affected areas through financial support from government agencies, institutions, foundations, organisations, companies and individual private donors.
Kvinna till Kvinna was founded in 1993 in Sweden, as a response to reports of mass rapes in the wars in Former Yugoslavia. Since then, we have grown considerably.
