As part of our initiative to improve the economic conditions of the countries in which we invest, AGC has partnered with and made a donation to the organization SHE-ERA in Kosovo.
SHE-ERA is a non-governmental organization established after the Balkan conflict of 1999 for the purpose of the economic empowerment of women and to promote women entrepreneurs. The areas in which the organization works correspond to the post-conflict needs of the country. The organization conducts research and analysis of the position of women and supports local governmental institutions to apply political and legal frameworks that promote gender equality and the involvement of Kosovar women in political, social, economic and cultural spheres.
Since its establishment, SHE-ERA has completed more than 50 projects at the local and regional level, provided training in business, consulting, research, analysis and mentoring. Over eleven thousand women have benefited from training and the other activities of the organization.
The funds provided by AGC will be dedicated to providing SHE-ERA’s members with mentoring advice and creating a link between SHE-ERA entrepreneurs and the market to facilitate the economic empowerment of women in Kosovo and increase incomes in local communities.
