The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation is looking for a Project Officer for Young Women’s Peace Academy to the Field Office in Jerusalem.
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation supports women during times of war and conflict to increase women’s power and influence. Today they cooperate with more than 130 women’s organisations in the Western Balkans, the South Caucasus, the Middle East and two countries in Africa. They started out at the beginning of the 1990’s in the Balkans as a direct result of the atrocities of the war with a focus on women, peace and security. They collaborate with women’s organizations that play an active part in peace and transition processes as well as promoting women’s rights and gender equality.
