Students from Mileniumi i Trete, with their parents and teachers, set up a booth in Prishtine selling sweets and baked goods, and they donated all the proceeds to the Kindergarten in Fushe Kosove. The Ideas Partnership centre in Fushe Kosove runs the only Kindergarten in the neighbourhood, and these students helped to make it possible!
Fushe Kosove Library
Thanks to donations from Mounts Bay Rotary Club, the centre in Fushe Kosove has a new library! To encourage summer reading, the child who borrows and writes a short review for the most books will receive a beautiful handmade notebook.The library will be available to all the children that participate in the activities in Fushe Kosove and this makes for a great opportunity for the children to spend their summer holidays in the company of a book.
