Greetings, dear supporter! Please find below the latest from our work in the past quarter. Thank you for your continuous support and contribution!
Canadian Ambassador visits TIP
Mr Daniel Maksymiuk, Ambassador of Canada to Kosovo and Croatia, and his team visited The Ideas Partnership’s learning center in Fushë Kosovë earlier this year. The Ambassador closely observed our activities which are supported by the Embassy of Canada through the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives. It was our pleasure to host this visit and explain in more detail the impact of our work in the lives of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Fushë Kosovë.
The Little Teachers activity has now started in Janjeva/o too, following the successful example of the Little Teachers in Fushë Kosovë. Ten teenagers from the Roma and Ashkali communities are participating in the activities conducted by two of our volunteers who have started teaching basic German language skills.

Donation from Danish KFOR
In January, the Danish Guard Detachment Team 37B of the KFOR mission in Kosovo donated 2685 euro to help us in our mission of offering equal educational opportunities to the children of the Roma, Ashkali, and Egyptian communities in Fushë Kosovë. Thank you to everyone who participated in the KFOR Dancon March and contributed so generously to our work! It was a pleasure to have them visit our center and meet the children in our kindergarten!
Seminar on the Inclusion of Roma and Ashkali communities
Members of the TIP team attended the Seminar on “Policy Commitment and Inclusion of Roma and Ashkali Communities in Kosovo Society” which was organized by the Office of the Prime Minister of Kosovo. The seminar discussed the challenges and priorities in implementing policies for these communities in Kosovo society.
The chance to learn new management skills
In February, TIP held the second part of the management workshop which focused on introducing the Management Menu. This document was prepared and developed by our supporter Keith Hill and Anemonë Zeneli, who is a TIP board member. The Management Menu helps the team identify where they would like to develop as.
