On the second day of the Kvinna till Kvinna (KtK) networking meeting in Budva, KtK shared fantastic news with its partner organizations.
Ristin Thomasson, regional manager of KtK for the Balkans presented the new regional strategy for the Western Balkans 2015-2019, and pointed out that KtK is not entirely withdrawing from the region. In the new strategy 2015-2019 KtK has decided to continue the program in thepost-conflict countries, Kosovo and Bosnia Herzegovina exclusively
While the old strategy had the capacity building of its partner organizations as a main goal, the new strategy focuses more in monitoring and advocacy for women’s rights and gender equality. Joining the EU will be also an important part of this strategy.
“One of the main goals of the new strategy is for Kosovo and Bosnia Herzegovina’s membership in the EU to have a pronounced focus on gender equality and women’s rights” said Ristin Thomasson, regional manager of KtK for the Balkans.
