The Ideas Partnership has been led into a series of inter-related projects in and with the community. We ran catch-up classes to give children remedial teaching and get them ready to start school; and we lobbied the Government and the municipality to ensure that they were able to. In September 2011, and again in 2012, we took a crocodile of children from Neighbourhood 29 to their first day in regular school, where they belong.
We've recruited a community advocate from the district, to be the bridge between the families and the school and to strengthen the relationship between the two. All of our work in Fushë Kosovë depends on volunteers, and many of them have come from the community itself.
