WSA was established in 2006 by a narrow group of women specializing mainly in the area of agronomy. Obviously work was limited in matters such as; capacity building and awareness-raising with main focus placed on agriculture production methods and technologies.
Early work and engagement includes arrangement of no cost activities such as open lectures and demonstrations, trainings, meetings with small groups of women intended to help WSA members create a better understanding on issues and to enhance cohesion between WSA and affected communities and target groups. This approach has given WSA the opportunity to establish a close relationship with the real concerns of women groups, as well as to obtain a broader network of contacts with a presence in almost every region of Albania.
WSA has been active with projects supported by foreign donor agencies and state institutions. It has participated in many national and international events addressing gender issues.
