A hospitality industry association supported by USAID is now functioning independently and has emerged as a major promoter of Kosovo as a tourist destination. The Kosovo Alternative Tourism Association (KATA) was founded in 2010 by a small group of hotel and travel agency owners as an alternative to the country’s national tourism association. USAID through its Kosovo Private Enterprise program assisted the nascent organization by sending the group to neighboring countries to learn more about best practices in alternative tourism.

Children of all ethnicities in Kosovo joined in Prizren on February 21 to celebrate International Mother Language. The children participated in a bookmaking workshop organized under the auspices of USAID's Basic Education Program. Six different native languages were represented.

The bookmaking activity aimed to promote creativity and an enhanced interest in literacy among primary school children by demonstrating a number of bookbinding techniques, including “pop-up” books. Students created books and filled them with their own illustrations and text in their native tongues.
