Jehona Gjurgjeala

Executive Director, TOKA

Jehona Gjurgjeala is the executive director of TOKA, a youth development organization that works to bridge the learning-gap between students in Kosovo and elsewhere through hands-on, experiential learning and community service work. Gjurgjeala, originally from Prishtina, grew up in the 90's, during which she and a group of classmates formed an informal youth group and began organizing concerts, workshops, exhibitions and more. It was the sense of community found in the group that stuck with her, and inspired her to work to instill the same in others.
