Meeting with local actors, Vlora

On February 18, 2022, AWEN, in collaboration with UN Women Albania, organized a meeting with local stakeholders in Vlora to gain a deeper understanding of and address the gaps in support services for survivors of gender-based violence. During the meeting, an action plan was finalized, which will serve as a framework to enhance institutional accountability in this regard. This activity was conducted as part of the regional program of UN Women aimed at ending violence against women and girls, with support from the European Union.

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.
