Kosovo is one of the world’s youngest nations and has a young population— nearly a third of all people are under the age of 15. A recent population boom has put additional strain on schools. To respond to the increasing need for quality education at the primary level, FHI 360 is working with the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology (MEST) to implement the Basic Education Program (BEP). One of the main goals of the program, which is funded by the US Agency for International Development and the Government of Kosovo, is to improve reading instruction and outcomes.
