The Feminine Side of Quality

About the project

The increase of labour force participation of women represents one of the most important components of development, economic growth and fight against unemployment in every society. This project was aimed at promoting cross border cooperation, as well as enhancing employability in Ulcinj (Montenegro) and Region of Lezha (Albania) through the empowerment of women as wage earners and job creators.

More specifically, it promoted and strengthened the linkage of vocational trainings with labour market demands by increasing the skills of labour force and enhancing employment opportunities. It contributed to the employability of women, especially those from the rural areas, by using agricultural potential of both, Montenegro and Albania. This was reached by combining the tradition of organic production with contemporary methods and standards, as the market is in need of local, homemade and traditional products.

The project involved all relevant stakeholders in facilitating women’s access to the labour market and promoted women’s work and products by providing conditions for their placement on the market. In short, it resulted in increased economic initiatives and support for women, as well as enhanced capacities of women and chances for their employability.
