Serbia

The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation began supporting women’s organisations in Serbia in 1994. We opened an office in Belgrade in 2001.

Our partner organisations are working to strengthen women’s rights, promote women’s role in peacebuilding and to help Serbia come to terms with its part in the 1990s Balkan wars. They also seek to increase women’s participation in politics by supporting young women’s initiatives, work against violence against women, fight discrimination of Roma and non-heterosexual women, and work with advocacy, artistic activism and education to increase awareness about women’s human rights.

Kvinna till Kvinna encourages and supports networking between different women’s organisations, both in Serbia and in the Balkans.
