The Ideas Partnership

The Ideas Partnership harnesses the power of volunteers to tackle challenges in education, cultural heritage and the environment in Kosovo and the region. Many of our projects work particularly with the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities
Widows Fund Fushe Kosova
 
Ensuring that when a father dies, his children's chance of education don't die with him. When a father of young children dies, it's always a tragedy. When the family was already living right on the economic edge and they are left without food in the cupboard, without savings and now without available manpower to earn, his children are forced out of school to earn for their families. This fund offers support to widows in the poorest community in Kosovo supporting kids to stay in school. project reportread updates from the field
Get a Kosovan Kid to School
 
We're working with the poorest community in the poorest country in Europe. Kosovo's Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians have poor attendance at school (96% have not completed compulsory education) which is cause and effect of poor health care, low employment, and a rubbish start in life for kids. Over the past four years we've worked successfully at getting these children into school, by offering resources like book bags, winter transport, academic support and a skilled mediator from the community. project reportread updates from the field
Kindergarten education for 30 children in Kosovo
 
96% of of the Roma, Ashkali & Egyptian communities in Kosovo do not complete compulsory education - a cause and an effect of poverty, exclusion, and poor health. Education is the only way to break the vicious cycle for families and communities, and after working for over 4 years to get Roma, Ashkali & Egyptian children to primary school, we have been asked by members of the communities in Fushe Kosove to open pre-school for their younger kids. Help us say yes to their dreams for their children! project reportread updates from the field
