From Football School to the Super League Group of Kosovo

Armis Avdiu was born in 2001 in Mitrovicë/a. Until 1998 his family lived in the village of Stan Tërg/Stari Trg Mitrovicë/a, in very bad living conditions. Armis now lives together with his parents in 2 Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhood in Mitrovicë/a, where he finished the 9th grade at “Bedri Gjinaj” primary school.

Due to very difficult economic conditions, Armis decided to drop out of school, in order to ensure some income for his family. With support from Danish Refugee Council (DRC), in 2015, Armis participated in a three-month vocational training on carpentry, at the Diakonie training center.

In July 2015, NGO PRAM with support from DRC started to implement the subproject “Football school”, financed by Sida, represented by the Swedish Embassy in Prishtinë/a. This subproject foresees to train more than 50 RAE children from Roma Mahala and 2 Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhoods.  “Knowing the talent that Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian children possess on sport of football, and in order to keep children away from negative influences, NGO PRAM with support of DRC started to draft the proposal for offering football classes to RAE children, and this idea was ”, stated NGO PRAM director Mr. Milaim Ramadani.

As soon as he heard about this subproject, Armis decided to register with this football school. In order to fulfill his childhood dream, Armis parents without any hesitation signed all paper works, in order to allow him to be part of the school.

As a child I dreamed of becoming a football player, therefore I would like to thank my parents, my trainer at Trepça 89, NGO PRAM and all other organizations involved on this subproject for offering our communities this opportunity”.

Mr. Shkëlzen Avdiu, Armis’s father says that he is very grateful to NGO PRAM and DRC for helping his son to follow his dreams, because he personally couldn’t follow his dreams because of poor economic conditions.

In the beginning, among 50 RAE children, Armis is registered in the U-17 group, which trains twice a week, coached by a UEFA licensed coach. Now Armis is training also with FC Trepça 89 which plays in the Kosovo Super League, in the U-17 team.  Now, Armis was registered in the Kosovo Football Federation, and plays official matches for FC Trepça 89.

I would like to thank his family for trusting me when we decided to bring him to FC Trepça 89, where he was accepted as part of the team in a remarkable way” said Lavdim Behxheti the coach of Trepça 89 for U13 and U17.

Danish Refugee Council Kosovo, with funding from Sida, as of March 2014, started implementing a 4-year Project: “Support to Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian Communities in Mitrovicë/a”. The Project aims to contribute to the stabilization and integration process of Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian women, men, girls and boys in Mitrovicë/a by providing the tools and support necessary for members of the Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian Communities and vulnerable members of the majority community to improve their future opportunities in education, employment and civic participation in a multi-ethnic Kosovo.

New Businesses graduate from DRC’s Social Business Incubator (SBI) Mitrovicë/a

On February 1st in 2017, 22 trainees from Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian Communities received certificates for successful completion of three-month training in Construction, Welding, Carpentry, Auto mechanic, Barber and Hairdresser at an event organized in Mitrovicë/a. Three businesses received graduation certificates from DRC’s Social Business Incubator. Deputy Mayor of Mitrovicë/a, Mr. Faruk Mujka held a speech where he stated that the municipality of Mitrovicë/a will continue to support DRC’s activities which are helping different communities to get higher education and trainings and prepare them for the job market. One of the graduated business owners stated that he is grateful to the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare for the training and for the help in trying to find better employment.

This graduation ceremony is a result of the Memorandum of Understanding signed with the Ministry for Labour and Social Welfare and DRC’s Social Business Incubator in Roma Mahalla, which provides infrastructure to offer preparatory vocational training courses to youth from Roma Mahalla and the Mitrovicë/a region.

In close cooperation with the Employment Office Mitrovicë/a, DRC identified mentors to offer courses in: Construction, Welding, Carpentry, Auto mechanic, Barber and Hairdresser.

Under the 3rd round framework of the trainings, 22 trainees were registered in May 2016 through the Employment Office Mitrovicë/a. They attended trainings and got the opportunity to gain basic skills that will facilitate their further vocational education.

Trainings with qualified mentors took place three times a week for the duration of three months. Certificates issued by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare for successful completion of the course will enable better employment opportunities.

With this programme, DRC's Social Business Incubator contributes not only to the existing employment and vocational training infrastructure in Mitrovicë/a region, but also establishes closer links between members of Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian communities and the majority community.

The preparatory vocational training programme is funded by Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) under the umbrella of the project Support to Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian Communities Project in Mitrovicë/a.

SBI Vocational Training Centre has been established by DRC in July 2013 in cooperation with Regional Center for Professional Skills in Mitrovicë/a under the agreement with MLSW and Employment Office Mitrovicë/a.

Talent knows no boundaries: Shaban's story

Shaban Gashijan was born on 15th of August 2004 in the Cesmin Lug Camp in Mitrovicë/a North. From 2002 to 2007 his parents lived in Cesmin Lug in very bad conditions. In 2007 they returned to their home in Roma Mahalla in Mitrovicë/a. Shaban is in 6th grade at “Branko Radicevic” primary school in Mitrovicë/a North.

Since 2011 Shaban attended educational activities on homework support provided by DRC’s local implementing partner RADC Learning Centre in Roma Mahala. The aim of the Learning Centre is to increase the involvement of children of Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian communities in Mitrovicë/a, by providing additional education support through which Shaban gains more knowledge in order to find his place in the school system.

In July 2015, NGO PRAM with support from DRC started to implement the subproject “Football school”, financed by Sida, represented by Swedish Embassy in Prishtinë/a. This subproject foresees to train more than 50 Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptian children from Roma Mahala and 2 Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhoods.

In 2016 Shaban was registered at the Football School where he trains together with 50 children from Roma Mahala and 2 Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhoods that participate twice per week in trainings at the local football stadium. After one year of training at Football School, Shaban was selected by FC Trepça 89 to play as a professional football player for Super League of Kosovo/a for U13 team.

Thanks to Danish Refugee Council through funds by the Swedish International Development Agency, Shaban Gashian continues to attend educational and sports activities, which make him part of the society.

DRC Community outreach enables more youths and adults from Roma Mahalla and Dy Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje to continue their education

As part of the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) funded project “Support to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Communities” in Mitrovicë/a”, Danish Refugee Council (DRC) community workers organized a community outreach effort to identify youths and adults who did not complete secondary school. The outreach was conducted in Roma Mahalla and Dy Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhoods from 28th of December 2016 to 5th of January 2017 by DRC’s community workers.

86 individuals were interviewed, 64 in Roma Mahalla, 12 in Dy Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje neighborhoods. 6 youths and adults were identified as potential candidates (5 male, and 1 female) to continue their education. Thanks to these efforts they are now registered in Secondary Economic school “Hasan Prishtina” in Mitrovicë/a.

This new group of students will join the first group of 7 (5 male and 2 female) students who are already registered in the Adult education program since October 2016.

DRC and health institutions In Mitrovicë/a raise awareness to combat lead poisoning

DRC with the support of local NGOs and the Main Center of Family Medicine in Mitrovicë/a (MCFMM), has been engaged in efforts to combat the dangers of lead poisoning faced by the community in Roma Mahalla, Mitrovicë/a through testing, treatment and prevention through awareness raising.

In May 2016, NGO PRAM and the Main Center of Family Medicine in Mitrovicë/a (MCFMM), with support of DRC organized blood tests for children of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities to assess lead levels. In the first round tests were conducted by MCFMM in Roma Mahalla and in 65 children found elevated levels of lead in their blood. Medications were given by MCFMM to decrease it.

Later another round of tests was performed, and only 9 out of 65 children tested showed elevated levels of lead in their blood. MCFMM will try to find free medicaments for these nine children.

In December 2016, DRC in cooperation with MCFMM held a lecture about "Prevention and protection from exposure of lead in the blood" for children of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Mitrovicë/a. Most of the participants were from the “Football school” subproject, implemented by local NGO PRAM. The lecture was held at the Learning Centre in Roma Mahalla in Mitrovicë/a. NGO PRAM one of DRC’s local partners, works with 40 children from Roma Mahalla and 2 Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje that participate twice per week in trainings at the local football stadium.

To include parents in prevention efforts MCFMM hosted a follow-up lecture with the same topic where 19 parents participated. OSCE representatives from Mitrovicë/a regional center were also present at the event.

Mrs. Sabrije Uka, the health educator engaged by the Centre said to the participants: “You should take care of the environment where you live so that children can have a place to play, continue going to school and get higher education”.  Also Mr. Milaim Ramadani, PRAM Project Manager pointed out that “PRAM’s vision is to improve living conditions of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian youth and children in Mitrovicë/a by helping them become active citizens. He stressed the urgency to find medications free of charge for the 9 children in need, and appealed for an urgent action to anyone who could support them”.

The subproject ‘Football School’ is implemented by PRAM within the “Support to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Mitrovicë/a” project, financed by the Swedish Government.

 

Scholarship programme for Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian youth continues

As part of the Sida-funded project “Support to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Communities in Mitrovicë/a”, DRC continues to support education in Roma Mahalla.
In October 2016 DRC signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the secondary economic school “Hasan Prishtina” in Mitrovicë/a to continue with the secondary school education programme for 7 (2 female and 5 male) youths from Roma Mahalla and Dy Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje.

This scholarship programme builds on the success achieved with similar initiatives in the past. In October 2014, DRC already supported 8 youths from Dy Korriku/Sitnicko Naselje to complete secondary school. They were registered in the secondary economic school “Hasan Prishtina” in Mitrovicë/a South. 75% achieved their educational goal and got equipped with diplomas.

With continued support from Sida, more youths from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian community will have a chance to finish their education.

Visitors' welcome in front of the Social Business Incubator in Roma Mahalla, Mitrovicë/a 

Visitors' welcome in front of the Social Business Incubator in Roma Mahalla, Mitrovicë/a 

On 16 December, DRC was happy to welcome three US volunteers from Peace Corps Kosovo to its Sida-funded project activities in Roma Mahalla, Mitrovicë/a. They visited DRC premises, the Social Business Incubator Foundation, the Learning Centre and local partners.

Welcomed by Social Business Incubator Foundation staff and Nana the Community Officer, the volunteers had the opportunity to visit the small startup businesses hosted at the incubator and the Vocational Training Centre whose trainees include women from vulnerable communities. The incubator assists businesses with skills trainings and workspace to put their entrepreneurial ideas into practice, while trainees at the Vocational Training Centre are mentored by experienced professionals enabling them to pursue careers in their chosen field.

A special highlight was the visit to the handicraft enterprise Gjuvlano Mangipe, which promotes handmade products made by Roma and Ashkali women from Roma Mahalla. In their showroom located in the Social Business Incubator, the women display their products and were happy to talk about their activities with the Peace Corps volunteers.

Children at the Learning Centre, Roma Mahalla

Children at the Learning Centre, Roma Mahalla

To learn about DRC’s educational activities in Roma Mahalla, the volunteers also visited the Learning Centre, which is run by a local NGO partner with support from Sida. At the centre, children of different age groups receive homework support among other things in order to bridge the learning gap caused by interrupted schooling and years of displacement. The visit provided plenty of ideas for possible cooperation in future.

All initiatives visited are funded by Sida within the framework of the Support to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Communities in Mitrovicë/a project implemented by DRC.

Peace Corps established its office in Kosovo 2013. Currently 58 Peace Corps Volunteers work at the grassroots level to create change that lasts long after their service. For more information please visit their website.
