As part of the Sida-funded project 'Support to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Mitrovicë/a', the Learning Centre in Roma Mahalla, Mitrovicë/a organized a certification ceremony for the participants of the subproject “Intensive education for RAE communities”.
Last year, 29 young adults from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian community, who were unable to finish primary school or never attended school at all, signed up for intensive education classes in order to continue their education. As a result of their hard work, 20 participants including 9 women, successfully completed the courses and passed the achievement test organized by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in June 2015 in the Learning Centre Roma Mahalla.
Today, their efforts were recognized with an official certificate for the completion of primary school up to grade 5. The certification was organized by DRC Mitrovica implementing partner Caritas Kosova in cooperation with Directorate for Education in Mitrovicë/a and the primary school “Andon Zako Çajupi”.
With the certificates, the successful participants are now able to pursue further education and many of them have already committed themselves to continue with classes.
