Back to school
“Going back to school changed my life for the better. I feel so much happier now” says Tringa*. With the help and encouragement from our colleagues supporting families in the community Tringa went back to school and she managed to catch up with her peers in no time.
School dropout rates remains a challenge and concern in the Kosovar society. Particularly in minority and marginalized communities. The risks and consequences that come with dropping out of school are lifelong. For girls this leads to early marriage and other social issues.
A brighter future for many children
In only one of the locations in the community, our colleagues have successfully reintegrated 5 children into school this year. They also helped with the registration of 15 more for the first time. That makes 20 children with a brighter futures thanks to donors like you! Working closely with schools, the Ministry of Education, and parents, our colleagues ensure that children receive the necessary support to adjust and catch up with their peers.

Good news travels fast. Following the initial success, even children outside our programs are reaching out to help them in their journey back to school.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to you, and please know that you are in the heart of every success story.
