Mission Statement
CLWG's mission is to ensure equal and full implementation of women's human rights in Albania by enabling women and girls victims of the physical, emotional, and sexual violence to break the cycle of violence and rebuild their lives. CLWG dedicates all its resources to combating violence against women and works directly with women and girls victims of violence.
Short Description

In 13 years since its establishment, around 38,000 women from all over Albania have received counseling and support over the phone. 7,900 of them benefited from face-to-face counseling and more than 3,800 have participated in group counseling.
CLWG published a collection of testimonies of women who benefited from the Center’s services. The book serves both as an awareness raising and an advocacy tool on behalf of women victims of violence. The book entitled “Without a beginning, without an end” is widely used by CLWG and other organizations that work on women’s rights issues.
CCGW has continuously engaged in awareness raising efforts targeting both potential victims of violence against women and the public at large. This includes publishing and distributing informative and educational leaflets and posters, producing and broadcasting TV and radio spots and special programs, as well as contributing extensively to TV, radio, and newspapers debates on women’s rights issues.
Over the years The Center has also organized series of workshops and facilitated discussions in high schools and work places focused on raising awareness about violence against women and trafficking, as well providing information about legal and practical support mechanism for victims of violence.
CLWG has provided training on violence against women to police, judges, educators, doctors and social workers, as well as public officials in city halls and prefectures of the country.
CLWG has provided technical assistance, training, mentoring, and on-the-job training to all centers that provide support for victims of violence against women in Albania (other then CLWG branches in the regions). This includes the centers in Elbasan, Durrës, Lezha, and Kukës.
