Rina Demiri Spahija

Rina joined Action for Mothers and Children as Executive Director in April 2024. Rina holds an MA in Management and Informatics from the University of Prishtina. She has worked for eleven years at the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo and was part of the financial supervision department. But, since Rina has become a mother, her career has developed in two different paths. She has volunteered in Kosovo for more than seven years as a Leader of La Leche League International, an organization that helps mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals.

Rina established the first mother-to-mother support group in Kosovo, La Leche League Kosova, where she provided evidence-based information regarding breastfeeding.
