Skopje - The USAID Interethnic Integration in Education Project, together with the Stiv Naumov Primary School and the Municipality of Bitola, celebrated the completion of renovations at the school. The process of refurbishment, financially supported by United States European Command (USEUCOM) and USAID, created a better learning environment for interethnic integration in education.

“Through this project, USAID is helping educators learn to better deal with diversity and multi-ethnic issues in the schools,” said Michael Stievater, USAID Democracy & Governance Office Director. “We’re also working with parents and other community members to promote tolerance, both inside the schools and in the larger community.” 

The USAID Interethnic Integration in Education Project is assisting ten more communities and schools to improve their school facilities, including accessibility for students with disabilities. The project is a four-year, $5.2 milion initiative that is co-financed by USAID and USEUCOM, which will work with all relevant educational stakeholders in support of the Government of Macedonia’s efforts for ethnic integration. The project will build awareness and provide diversity training, technical assistance, and incentives to school boards, principals, teachers, and administration officials.
