Visit to Learning Centers in the municipality of Gjakova

On 22th of August 2018, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, jointly with the Ministry of Education (MEST) and the German Embassy conducted a visit to Learning Centers in the municipality of Gjakova that are operated by GIZ Partner NGOs Bethany Christian Service and Nevo Koncepti.

The present Minister of Education, Science and Technology Mr. Shyqiri Bytyqi, Ambassador of the German Federal Republic Mr. Christian Heldt and the Major of Gjakova Mr. Ardian Gjini were able to become acquainted with a community based Learning Center, that is located in a concentrated area where families from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities form the majority of population, before continuing their visit at an in-school Learning Center, that is located within the school premises. Statements made by students, parents and tutors throughout the visit impressively endorsed the significance of the support that attending children receive at both Learning Centers, which was also confirmed by the Minister and the Ambassador.

In this manner, the visit did not only underline the importance of continuous support to both forms of Learning Centers but also increased the attention of crucial stakeholders in the upcoming process of revaluation of an Administrative Instruction that deals with establishing and functionalizing the Learning Centers.
