Supporting durable solutions for collective centre residents in Kosovo
The objective of this project is to assist up to 119 displaced and vulnerable families to achieve durable solutions following their exit from collective centres in the Municipality of Štrpce/Shtërpcë, enabling them to improve their living conditions, settle and fully participate in local community life.
In detail, the project aims to achieve three main results, which target housing solutions, improvement of socio-economic conditions and the capacity of the Municipality of Štrpce/Shtërpcë to provide adequate conditions for successful integration of current CC residents and vulnerable individuals in particular.
Housing solutions have been found for displaced and vulnerable families facilitating their exit from collective centres
To accommodate up to 119 families from collective centers, DRC plans to construct up to four apartment buildings in Štrpce/Shtërpcë Municipality. Infrastructure projects will also be implemented to connect the buildings to the wider community.
Immediate needs of displaced families are addressed and their ability to access livelihood opportunities has been improved
Livelihoods and income-generation interventions in this project include provision of harmonized packages including food and non-food assistance, and a mix of income generation activities promoting both vocational skills improvements and self-employment.
The Municipality of Štrpce/Shtërpcë has increased capacity to support the sustainable integration of vulnerable families
