At the same time, a visit for women group of Dugujevë village and surrounding villages will be organized to the municipality of Klinë, where they will closely get to know with the work of Municipal Assembly and the work that this institution did for women empowerment in this municipality, in particular for rural area women.

This project aims to raise women awareness in rural areas and their active participation in institutional life, with special emphasis on women inclusion in public institutional life. This project derived from the women of Dugujevë village. It is being supported by NGO Syri i Vizionit, under the auspices of “Active Citizenship” program funded by the Olof Palme International Center and SIDA.
