LDA KOSOVO MARKED ITS FIRST ANNIVERSARY WITH A CONFERENCE ON THE “THE RIGHT OF EDUCATION“

Local Democracy Agency of Kosovo with the support of Regional Centre of OSCE in Peja/Pec and “Associazione Tretino con I Balkani”, organized a Conference for its first anniversary.

The conference “The right of education; an opportunity for community Development” was part of the project “Fostering parentally responsibility in preventing school dropouts” implemented by LDA Kosovo with the Support of OSCE and ATB.

Attended the conference experts from Municipalities of Peja/Pec, Klina and Gjakova, representatives of civil society organization, school directors and community representatives.

They discussed the challenges and difficulties they are fazing in fighting school dropouts.

The school attendance is in fact one of the main reasons of concern for the communities in this area and needs to be tackled through the involvement of the parents, by fostering their engagement and making them aware of the importance of primary education and of the current Kosovo legislation. In addition, more municipal engagement is also required to address such a complex phenomenon.

OSCE Regional center in Peja/Pec with the support of LDA Kosovo and ATB, will support the municipal director of education in drafting an action plan fighting school dropout issue.

This action plane aims to be addopted by the Assembly of Municipality of Peja.
