War-affected women farmers receive bees and hens with additional farming supplies
With the grant approved by Kosova Women’s Network, 34 women farmers - out of which majority of them with the status of war widows - benefited through receiving bees and hens for developing farming activities and increasing their family incomes.
This project funded by European Union and UN Women as well as implemented by Kosova Women’s Network provided distribution of 420 hens and 57 families of bees for these women coming from 10 villages of Gjakova and Decani Municipality.
Distribution took place after the women went through a number of training sessions on bee and hen-care as well as in appropriate management of facilities as additional farming tools received during this process.
Ownership rights over these resources remain with the women expected to improve their farming conditions and increase family incomes through selling of their products.
