President of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs. Atifete Jahjaga, visited today the Girls Club of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Community in Fushë Kosova, which aims to offer support to adolescent girls of this community in continuation of their education.

During her stay at the club, President Jahjaga congratulated its leader, Ms. Elizabeth Gowing and the volunteers of the “The Ideas Partnership” NGO for their engagements and their continuous endeavours for many years in improvement of conditions    of this community. She praised the girls and their families for the importance they pay to education, emphasizing that they are an inspiration to the community, to the society and to the whole of Kosovo.

“I was impressed by all the results I saw during my stay here, at this centre, and especially by the work which Elizabeth and all the volunteers have put in during all these years. I would like to thank them for the exceptional work and for the results they have shown, especially for the young girls, to convince them not to quit their education, to advance themselves and to invest in themselves, in their continuous education” said President Jahjaga.

“You know that Kosovo is still battling with the high school dropout rate, especially by young girls, in particular the community whose guest we are today. This phenomenon must end. This is one of the initiatives which is reflecting great positivity and with exceptional results in the society” added President Jahjaga.
