Learn. Support. Empower

After nearly 15 years of studying and working in the United Kingdom and Denmark, Jehona has returned to her native Kosovo* to start up TOKA – an organisation that aims to improve Kosovan society by investing in the education of its youth.

“The greatest benefit I have gained from my time abroad has been my education. In the UK, they primarily teach you how to think critically,” she says.

Nevertheless, he took the plunge and is now a shining example of successful reintegration.
