The project in summary

Youth-led creative arts projects developed in the three Municipalities of Pristina, Fushe Kosova and Prizren (Kosovo).

The project in detail

The project, which will be developed in the three Municipalities of Pristina, Fushe Kosova and Prizren, aims to pilot the implementation and replication of the new methodology “You Create” in Kosovo to offer arts-based psychosocial support to minors and youth on the move and Street Children, with emotional dysfunctional behaviors spectrum due to their constant exposure to economic and sexual abuse, exploitation, violence and neglect, and at high risk of social exclusion.

Specifically, this project aims to:  

  • Improve the psychosocial well-being, enhance self-esteem and build the resilience of children and youth on the move and Street Children through the development and realization of youth-led creative arts projects;
  • Strengthen the Capacity Building of the Staff of Terre des hommes (Tdh) in Kosovo for implementing and disseminating the new methodology “You Create” in other municipalities across the country where Tdh currently delivers a holistic and integrated range of care services directed at children in conditions of extreme hardship and social vulnerability.
  • 15 Adult Allies (professionals in child protection, social workers and psychologists), of whom 5 Tdh Staff working in the Daily Center for Children on the Move;
  • 10 Youth Leaders (13-22 ages);
  • 50 peer youth (13- 22 ages) participants in youth-led art projects.

Between May-October 2021, Fondation Terre des hommes, with Alta Mane support, foresees to organize 2 training sessions (2 days each) for 15 Adult Allies (professionals in child protection, social workers and psychologists) and 10 Youth Leaders (13-22 ages), minors and youth on the move and Street Children, in conditions of extreme hardship and social vulnerability. The training sessions aim to strengthen the local Capacity Building on the implementation and dissemination of the new methodology “You Create” and to train and accompany the youth to develop and create youth-led creative arts projects in the three Municipalities of Pristina, Fushe Kosova and Prizren.
