KWN participates in networking meeting of Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation

Between November 19 and 22, the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation brought together in Prizren eight partner organizations from Kosovo, at the networking meeting to discuss the theory of change and the theory of conflict. Mirjeta Dibrani, Kosovo Women’s Fund Grant Assistant (KWF), participated as a representative of the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN).

On the first day of the meeting, Yllka Soba, Program Officer, and Stina Magnuson Buur, Head of the Western Balkan Office of the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation (KtK), presented the training topics as well as the items planned for discussion during these days. Further on, participants discussed the challenges that organizations have faced during this year.

In the following days, KtK representatives addressed topics related to the theory of change, the empowerment of the movement – the gap between generations, the transformation of conflict in theory and practice, as well as communication as a means of conflict resolution.

Most of the participants had never heard of these topics before, and stressed that they learned a lot, especially about the attention that should be devoted to all elements, from the writing of a project proposal to the final product.

The participants were happy with the training, pointing out that the discussed topics and group work would help them apply changes to their daily work.

At the end of the meeting, it was also recommended that KtK should organize at least twice a year networking meetings, considering the importance of empowerment through the exchange of information.
