Consider an end-of-year donation to BSF!

Dear friend of Balkan Sunflowers,

With Giving Tuesday just around the corner, we would like to tell you about some major successes of the past year and express how thankful we are to the donors and volunteers who continue to support our work in Kosovo.

Over the past year:
  • Balkan Sunflowers became one of the launch partners for the Kosovo Education and Employment Network (KEEN) which, with European Union support, seeks to improve employability of disadvantaged groups.
  • Our Learning Centers Network added a Social Emotional Learning component to the newest edition of Planned Activities for Cohesive Education (PACE). Our staff in Shtime continues its great cooperation with Emin Duraku primary school and is even supporting the development of a new education strategy for children there.
  • After two years of successful cooperation with The Ideas Partnership and Play International and supported by the Austrian Development Agency, we launched a new phase of the EDI project working to achieve our common goal of inclusive education for all children in Kosovo.
  • With partner People in Need and sharing knowledge and expertise with partners in the Czech Republic, BSF is developing the skills of Social Consultants in Fushe Kosova and Gracanica. These individuals will provide consultations to ensure better social services to families in their communities. The project further supports School Mediators with the aim of preventing early school leaving.
None of this can happen without support from our donors and private contributions from people like you! Please consider making an end-of-year contribution to Balkan Sunflowers which will specifically support our Learning Centers Network as we prepare for winter. We need your help to reach our $3500 target.

Your contribution will enable two outcomes:
  • A new heating system for our Plemetina Buildings Learning Center will heat four rooms evenly and safely as well as provide a cook stove to prepare meals and snacks for children.
  • An educational New Year’s gift package loaded with school and art materials, a game, and more will be provided to each of the 400+ children attending our centers. For many of these children, coming from disadvantaged situations, this is the only gift they will see during the holiday season and it makes a real difference to them.
