Some updates from BSFK

Although we're less than two months into 2017, Balkan Sunflowers Kosova is optimistic that this will be a great year for all those benefiting from our projects in Kosovo. Thanks to the outpouring of support for our crowdfunding campaign, in addition to providing educational gifts to all the children attending our Learning Centers Network, we were able to install a central heating system at our Plemetina Buildings Learning Center. Ever since, kids are even more eager to take part in our program at the Learning Center!

We continue the effort to promote the health and well-being of individuals from Kosovo's Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities. To do this, it's important to get commitment from municipal leaders all over Kosovo so we are pleased to have signed our fifth memorandum of understanding - this time with the Municipality of Lipjan. We have previously signed MOUs in Gjakova, Gracanica, Ferizaj and Fushe Kosova where we will facilitate the design of local action plans for inclusion of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities. With cooperation of the municipalities, we are making strides towards a better future when members of Kosovo's most marginalized communities have proper access to health care.

Finally, back at the our Learning Centers, over 70 youth from Fushe Kosova, Gracanica, Plemetina and Shtime have attended trainings to learn advocacy skills for how to ensure that their communities are receiving all the health services guaranteed to them by Kosovo law. These young people are change agents and we are very proud of them.

We look forward to seeing what exciting things lie ahead in the spring!
Balkan Sunflowers Kosova currently receives funding from the European Union, Austrian Development Agency, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Czech Development Agency, UNICEF and generous private donations.
