AWEN network retreat

On July 13 and 14, AWEN organized a retreat for network member organizations. Over the course of two days, we had the opportunity to share experiences and best practices for managing work-related stress, while also taking time to reflect on our emotional and psychological well-being. We emphasized the importance of gratitude for what we have, understanding our personal safety boundaries, and learning self-defense methods. These two days spent on the coast of Radhima provided us with an opportunity to come together, relax, and recharge after a busy period, enabling us to recommence our collaborative efforts with renewed energy in promoting and protecting women's rights in Albania.

Protection of criminal victims

During the last 6 months, AWEN has been defending 19 victims of criminal offenses in the District Courts. All cases have experienced crimes of gender-based violence against them and their family members.
