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.

PRM project helps rebuilding lives and livelihoods in Kosovo

Srdjan Dimić and his wife fled from their home in Izvor, Kosovo, to Serbia in 1999. In 2017, they returned with their baby daughter to find their house completely destroyed. With nowhere to live and no means to pay rent, the family found shelter in Srdjan’s brother’s basement. 

The family was struggling. Their cramped living quarters, concern for their new-born child and lack of financial means left them feeling overwhelmed. Families like Srdjan’s who return to remote, rural areas often find it difficult to cope on their own in the beginning.

To make sure these families get a chance to rebuild their lives in Kosovo, PRM projects implemented by DRC fund basic needs assistance, including food and essential non-food items, that can help families get over the first difficulties. As part of the PRM project, DRC could also advocate with local authorities to prioritize the family for full house construction, which was approved shortly after.

“PRM-funded basic needs assistance covers gaps and provides immediate relief for families”

While the family was waiting for their home to be completed, the project focused on helping Srdjan make an income to provide for his family. Because of his experience in making brandy, Srdjan was selected for a brandy production grant and received brandy production equipment, trainings and business mentoring as well as market access through participating in trade fairs.

In 2018, with construction of the house completed, the family moved into their new home. Putting the grant he received in 2017 to use, Srdjan produced over 1000 litres of brandy, which he sold at fairs and directly to restaurants in the region. 

With the success he achieved as a result of the PRM-funded brandy production grant and business and grant application trainings, Srdjan felt confident to try and expand his business. 

To save costs and increase production, Srdjan developed the idea to plant his own plum and apple trees. Using his experience he gained during the PRM project, he successfully applied for a follow-up grant from Serbia of 700 plum and apple tree seedlings. 

“PRM-funded grants can help returnees get on their feet and help them rebuild their livelihoods” 

With a little assistance to get started, Srdjan and his family have taken great strides towards reintegration in Kosovo. PRM funding allows DRC to continue supporting other returnee families to rebuild their lives and livelihoods in Kosovo.

EU and MCR support health centres in Štrpce/Shtërpcë Municipality

With funding from the EU and co-financing provided by the Ministry for Communities and Return (MCR), DRC provided  medical equipment to 3 health centres in Štrpce/Shtërpcë Municipality to improve coverage of health services in the Municipality.

Based on needs assessments conducted with the municipal Department of Health, medical staff of the centres and DRC, 3 health centres were equipped with medical devices to improve diagnostics including blood analysis and electrocardiograph units as well as dentistry equipment. In addition, centres were supported with a variety of necessary medical furniture and small medical equipment. All equipment was delivered, installed and tested in collaboration with the medical staff at the centres and the Director of the Health Department.

Moreover, DRC will build and equip a small ambulance within the apartment buildings under construction in Brezovica. The Municipality of Štrpce/Shtërpcë has committed to include this ambulance in their health infrastructure ensuring vulnerable and elderly beneficiaries will have easy access to health checks once they move from the collective centres to their new apartments.

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