Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein and Save the Children Switzerland visit Kosovo country office

Friday 22 September 2017

 

Save the Children in Kosovo works tirelessly to make education accessible for all children. Together with our partners, we work with communities to educate and inform them about the importance of education for children.

Save the children Switzerland and Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein have been our biggest donors in the field of inclusive education. We’ve been targeting municipality of Mitrovica, as the most disadvantaged region, specifically working Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities to increase children’s participation in schools.

 

For the purpose of closer cooperation and support, this week, Save the Children in Kosovo had the pleasure to host representatives from our donors: Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein and Save the Children Switzerland.

Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein is supporting Save the Children in Kosovo in the area of Education, specifically at Inclusive Education project.  The aim of this visit was to monitor some of the project activities while meeting the targeted beneficiaries, implementing partners and the stakeholders.

We visited "Anton Z. Çajupi" pre-primary and primary school in Mitrovica. This school is one of the targeted schools of our project "Promoting inclusive education in Kosovo" which aims at increasing access to education of disadvantaged communities.

Representatives from Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein and Save the Children Switzerland also had the chance to meet with representatives of Municipal Education Directorate in Mitrovica. We used this opportunity to discuss about future plans and commitment as well as the needs and opportunities to move this project forward.
