Emopowering the role of women in informal districts
Margarita has been an agronomist for over 25 years, a job that has put her in close contact with the rural-agricultural communities, especially with the difficult life of the women in the region of Shkodra. That is why she came up with a project that will improve the agriculture economy of the region and consequently enhance the lifes of these women. Margarita’s program involves 165 women, divided in 10 groups, 4 of which are from the highlands communities (Postribe, Gruemire, Tamare, Shkrel), and 6 from flat areas (Dajç, Ana e Malit, Gur i Zi, Bushat, Velipojë, Berdicë). The program involves agriculture trainings, demonstration in farms and participation in local and national fairs, as well as conferences. Margarita, through this initiative, seeks to create a network of women from these rural areas that later can create and maintain a national network. In this initiative Margarita has the support of Oxfam-Albania an international organization experienced in humanitarian intervention.
