Dear friends,

We are glad to inform you that after our pleasant experience with the Italian blog, the IIMA Human Rights Office has decided to open a new blog in English.

On this blog, you may follow our main activities with the United Nations and its mechanisms for the protection and promotion of human rights, as well as news from the UN bodies and IIMA offices in different countries related to the right to education.

Do you want to collaborate with us? You can apply for an internship at the IIMA Human Rights Office. Click here!

VIDES International for Albanian women


Give young women a lifetime of opportunity through professional cooking classes and personal development.
Why we care: With no education and proper training, young women from Lezhe, Albania are at risk of being extremely marginalized, sexually exploited, or underground immigration.
How we’re solving this: We’re giving young women in Lezhe shelter and protection, teaching them how to cook through professional training, and hosting sports activities for their all-around development.
With your support, we’ll provide room and board for 10 at-risk young women (16-25 years old) for 12 months. Also, we’ll organize professional cooking courses, totaling 400 hours, for 15 women who are staying at the shelter home. Finally, we’ll host sports activities for 30 girls from the Youth Centre to help them make the most of their leisure time.
