PRISTINA - Professional sewing machines and other tailoring tools and equipment have been donated by KFOR to the Non-Governmental Organization ‘Jeta’ (life, in Albanian) based in Decane, to enable vocational training courses in favour of female victims of gender-based violence or in distress. 

Over the years, many women have benefitted from the NGO’s activities, and we are grateful for KFOR’s support

The project has been funded by NATO and implemented by Italian Soldiers of KFOR Regional Command West, in the framework of the assistance provided in an impartial way to all communities of Kosovo. ‘Jeta’ was established in 2005 to help women in need regardless of ethnicity, age and religion, by providing professional training as cooks, hairdressers and tailors. 

Over the years, many women have benefitted from the NGO’s activities, and we are grateful for KFOR’s support”, said Jeta’s director Safete Gacaferi, who is also advocating for the promotion of women's rights and conditions in Kosovo.

The NATO-led operation is committed to assist those institutions and organizations that protect women and to promote their role in Kosovo, in accordance with the spirit of UNSCR Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security”, stated Colonel Gianluca Figus, the Commander of KFOR multinational unit composed by Italian, Austrian, Slovenian, Polish, Moldovan, Swiss and Turkish military personnel operating in Western Kosovo.
