USAID Success Story: Breathing New Life into Kosovo's Schools
February 2014 — FHI 360 is working to improve education opportunities for children in Kosovo through the Kosovo Basic Education Program, a program funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Kosovo BEP helps to strengthen the Government of Kosovo's education reform efforts by targeting the critical elements for a modern education system. The program partners with Kosovo's Ministry of Education, Science and Technology to enhance school management capacity throughout the country’s decentralized education sector, strengthen student assessments and improve in-service teacher training. This success story shows how the Kosovo Basic Education Program is engaging communities to improve the lives of children through its “classroom makeover” initiative, which provides parents and volunteers with materials to make vital updates to school classrooms.
