A handmade welcome sign in many languages

Greg Delawie, Ambassador of the United States of America to the Republic of Kosovo visited an activity to mark the International Mother Language Day, at the Professional Development Center in Novo Brdo established with USAID support. USAID’s Basic Education Program invited teachers and students of different communities from Kosovo to participate in various activities that promote diversity and inclusion.

Through these activities, students interacted with each other and fostered their understanding for different cultures and languages. The main focus of the day was book-making and writing in mother language. The books made by students were in three book-making techniques: Pop-up books; Simple ribbon book; and Hand-sewn Paperback book. A final display of students’ group work was presented to all participants.
