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 140 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 four programs.
