About Us

Established in 1996, KWN was originally an informal network of women’s groups and organizations from various regions in Kosova. Since its inception, KWN has developed into a network that advocates on behalf of Kosovar women, at the local, regional and international level. Representing the interests of its 106 members, including women’s organizations of all ethnic groups from throughout Kosova, KWN is a leader among civil society organizations in Kosova and the region. KWN cooperates regularly with other women’s groups in the region both informally and formally.

Based on its Strategic Plan, KWN has five programs:

In 2012, with support from Kvinna till Kvinna, KWN launched the Kosovo Women’s Fund, which provides small grants to its member organizations. With minimal resources, KWN members are initiating important changes within their communities.

In 2006, KWN became the first network of not-for-profit, non-governmental organizations in Kosova to adopt a code of conduct, setting an example of transparency and accountability.
