On 5th April 2018, the Executive Director of VoRAE, Mr. Isak Skenderi and Mayor of the Municipality of Fushe Kosova / Kosovo Polje , Mr. Burim Berisha signed yet another cooperation agrement on improving the housing conditions of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians and other vulnerable groups living in this municipality.
This year, we expect to include up to 25 families in renovations and construction of houses with models 27m2, 42m2 and 60m2. The project is expected to begin implementation in July, while technical preparations will begin in April.
The budget for 2018 is 80,000 EUR. So far, from 2014-2017, there were 174 families supported in the Municipality of Fushë Kosovë / Kosovo Polje.
VoRAE and Municipality of Fushe Kosova have been cooperating in the field of housing improvement through VoRAE's House Up-Grading model since 2014. This action is made possible thanks to 'Social Inclusion of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians' Project, phase II financed by Swiss Cooperation Agency in Pristina and co-implemented with HEKS Foundation and Terre des hommes.
