Hands to Hands Against Nation’s Apathy (HANA) is a youth organisation operating in the remote town of Lezhe, in an area facing large-scale societal apathy. They engage with young people, mostly from rural areas, and guide them towards becoming active citizens in their communities. EED’s support is providing them with a start-up grant that has enabled them to furnish and equip their centre, used as a common working space and a meeting place for young activists. The grant will also allow HANA to conduct workshops about journalism, community engagement, and art, as well as field trips and career guidance sessions for the youth.
