The final review of the networks’ documentation was made and the members agreed about the final changes. The chairmen and secretary of the network were selected, Kosova Education Center
will be the chairmen and Balkan Sunflowers Kosova
will be the secretary of the network for the period of one year. The training materials and timeframe for their implementation were also discussed and will be defined in the near period.
The aim of the K-RAEYN is to establish a network of ECD professionals and para-professionals from RAE communities in Kosovo, and those who work with RAE communities in Kosovo. It is based on the concept of Romani Early Years Network (REYN) which was launched at a special event, during the international ECD conference, organized jointly by the International Step by Step Association (ISSA) in October 2012.
The member organizations of the leading council of the K-RAE-EYN who also took part in the meeting are the following: Iniciativa 6, Balkan Sunflowers Kosova, Save the Children, Bethany Christian Services, and Kosova Education Center.
The next meeting of the Leading Council will be held during May 2014.
Previously, Kosovo Education Center organized two meetings with K-RAE-EYN members, one in December 2013 and one in April 2014, where the idea and plans of the network was discussed and the members were registered.
