Since 2001, UNICEF supports the creation in Kosovo of schools that are effective (child-centred, interactive learning), healthy, protective (inclusion of all children, including children with special needs), and with an active involvement of parents and communities in school. Implementation of activities that create such Child Friendly Schools (CFS) has been the responsibility of seven implementing partners (NGO).

Type of services provided
PROMAN provided the services of an Education Expert who collected information through study of documents, field visits to several project regions and municipalities, school visits and classroom observations; held extensive discussions with Ministry staff, regional educational officers, PTA, PTC, teachers, school principals, children and parents, and with staff from the implementing NGOs.
The expert assessed the progress to date, the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability and formulated a set of useful recommendations for each of these criteria as well as recommendations to move from “piloting” to “education development” through partnerships, participation, use of educational information and better planning. A detailed Action Plan for the implementation of these recommendations was proposed.
PROMAN HQ ensured the efficient backstopping of the project.
