Community Activist Network 2004-2005
Thursday, 18 December 2008
The Community Activists Network project for 2004-2005 concluded at the beginning of October 2005. The one year project brought 14 European Voluntary Service (EVS) volunteers to Kosovo for periods from 6 months to one year. The volunteers(from Bulgaria, France, Poland, Romania, Spain and the UK) lived with host families and worked in Gjilan/Gnjilane, Gracanica/e, Obiliq/c, Lipljan/Lipjan, Priluzhe, Plemetina/e, Kosovo Polje/Fushe Kosova,and Mitrovica. Local partners in these communities helped the volunteers adjust to the communities, and worked together to involve young activists in developing and implementing activities in their communities. Among the activities implemented in the communities:
Tolerance in Our Schools workshops
Scout winter campout
Human rights workshops
Youth journalism program
"No power" party
Youth center activities
Assistance to scabies eradication project
Video introductions of the CAN program in 2004-2005 were prepared by the volunteers for new volunteers. These can be seen at Community Activist Network
The project included monthly trainings and meetings for the volunteers and local partners. It involved many hundreds of kids and youth in its supported activities.
The primary support for this project was provided by the Youth Agency of the European Union. A new phase of CAN - the Community Activists Network 3 - begins 8 May 2007.
