Stella’s objective is to contribute to gender equity in North Macedonia through educational and economic empowerment of girls and women. Bringing together women from different professional, ethnic, socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, Stella aims to bridge multiple societal divides and create networks of solidarity, knowledge, and experience. To that end, Stella’s goal is to initiate a nationwide dialogue and create a platform where women will give voice to the existing challenges and constraints in their educational and economic empowerment, where men will partake in the debate as well, and where enduring solutions will be developed.
