Balance was created in August 2016, not as a formal registered organization but as a group that contributes to gender equality by participating and organizing different activities. The group is driven and motivated by latest events in their community: women dying because of violence from their husbands, young girls dropping out of school to get married, women with beaten marks on their faces and many others incidents of human rights violations. Their mission is to promote awareness and simultaneously strengthen girls, their dignity and their status in Kosovo. Their goal is to motivate a sustained behavior change towards girls in the community with special reference to stopping child marriage and continuing education. The group intends to educate youth and raise awareness about child marriages so that Kosovo citizens work together to create a protected and stable family.
This is the first time the group has got together and collectively work on a project and FRIDA is excited to support their new dreams and visions.
