We want our rights, we want to study, we want to work!

Raising awareness on human rights and equal opportunities is a fundamental part of our work! For many of us to go to school and get a job comes naturally, but not for women from the Roma community in Fushe-Kruje. Most of these women gained their basic literacy and numeracy skills thanks to our projects, however, a major number of them remain at home not leaving their community fearing their mothers in law and jealousy of their husbands. That’s why we went to the streets demanding these rights, trying to bring about the positive change little by little.

The activity was financed by ADRA Germany in frame of the project “Empowerment of children in suburban areas of Tirana and Kruja” and BMZ Germany (Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development) in frame of the project “Return to Thrive”.
