EU-funded community development project brings youth from different communities together

With funding from the European Union, over 40 youth from Albanian and Serbian communities in Štrpce/Shtërpcë took part in multi-ethnic English language classes organized by DRC.

Starting in January 2018, the English language courses brought together local Serbian and Albanian youth including young IDPs from collective centres in Brezovica, three times per week. Based on the feedback from youth, the classes served not only to improve language skills, but also to increase social inclusion of collective centre youth as well as fostering friendships and positive interaction between majority and minority communities.

This community development project was implemented under the umbrella of the 'Supporting durable solutions for collective centre residents in Kosovo' project, which is funded by the European Union and co-financed by MCR.
