PRISTINA - KFOR Soldiers of Regional Command West delivered six electronic interactive whiteboards, six video-projectors and six laptops to the Schools of Strpce, in Southern Kosovo. The NATO-funded project will improve the means and capabilities of the local education system consisting of six primary and middle schools, attended by 2,000 pupils and students belonging to four ethnic groups of Kosovo. Italian and Polish Soldiers together finalized the project, which had been initiated by the KFOR Headquarters' Civil-Military Cooperation Team.
The inauguration of one of the interactive whiteboards took place at the "Staja Markovic" School in Strpce, and was attended by the Commander of KFOR Regional Command West, Colonel Gianluca Figus, along with the principals of the six schools that will benefit from the donation.
The electronic equipment received today will facilitate the online learning that our schools are implementing to cope with the Covid19 pandemic, and will also enable an increase in our educational standards towards European levels"
Many students also attended the inauguration and had the opportunity to try out the new equipment. Srdjan Ivanovic, the deputy director of a high school, highlighted that "the electronic equipment received today will facilitate the online learning that our schools are implementing to cope with the Covid19 pandemic, and will also enable an increase in our educational standards towards European levels".
Ganimete Xhemajli – the principal of a primary school – expressed her satisfaction with the donation that will likely be exploited by her students in September.
Colonel Figus eventually reaffirmed KFOR's impartial commitment to support all institutions in Kosovo that work for the coexistence and cooperation among all ethnic groups, with special focus on the education of young generations.
