The overall aim of these campaigns is to improve the overall social and economic opportunities and conditions of the communities living in six areas in which the project in question is being carried out, with particular emphasis on the educational and teaching aspect of children and their families. With the engagement of families, children, school teachers, local government officials and representatives of civil society organizations, the main needs and problems of the social, educational and economic spheres of the communities and primary schools of the six different areas of the municipalities of Pejë, Klinë and Istog were identified. And, as a result, efforts and resources have been activated for their solution, primarily with the help of local and public institutions, as well as other stakeholders involved in this process.
