About the Project Bridge 2

About the project: The purpose of this project is to support 30-40 youth in each of seven program sites in the municipalities of Gjakovë/Đakovica, Ferizaj/Uroševac, Prishtinë/Priština, Gjilan/Gnjilane through the delivery of a strategic mix of Ten (10) interactive Training Modules designed to stimulate inter-ethnic communication and collaboration among Kosovo youth. The goal of the program is to use and promote the English language as a common language to stimulate interethnic collaboration in the social, academic, and professional areas among Kosovo youth – thus strengthening Kosovo’s sociocultural cohesion and tolerance, academic collaboration, economic prospects, and international integration of its youth and consequentially of its future generations of leaders, thinkers, and doers.
