Residents of two communities in Leposavic are enjoying improvements to local infrastructure with the support of the American People. The U.S. Agency for International Development recently renovated a playground in Ibarsko Postenje and re-surfaced a road in Gornji Krnjin. Both of the projects were implemented by the USAID Kosovo Activities for Supporting Schools Program at the request of local residents. The program assists similar infrastructure improvements in communities throughout the North.

In Gornji Krnjin, USAID paved an existing dirt road, installed a drainage system for water and built retaining walls. In Ibarsko Postenje, USAID re-surfaced a sports court, and installed bleachers, fencing, lighting, and playground equipment for little children. Several village residents were employed during the construction. The facility is used by some 1,300 residents of surrounding villages, so it should be a valuable contribution to quality of life in the community, just in time for summer!
