In a society segregated physically and psychologically by the legacy of conflict, through the National Democratic Institute (NDI), USAID is convening Kosovars of diverse ethnic backgrounds in purposeful dialogue about the issues that both divide and unite them to engender cooperation between communities on issues of shared concern and interest.
The program’s main objectives are to:
USAIDs EMPOWER Credit Support (ECS) addresses one of the key constrains to economic growth in Kosovo: access to credit for high-growth potential micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs).
USAID’s Justice System Strengthening Program (JSSP) is a four-year rule of law program that builds upon USAID’s prior efforts to advance the rule of law in Kosovo and ensure that the justice system operates in a professional, efficient, and accountable manner. The program focuses on promoting a judicial system that adheres to high standards of independence, impartiality, integrity, accountability, and transparency, and on supporting the functioning and integration of judicial structures in the North.
The Transformational Leadership Program (TLP) provides educational opportunities for Kosovo’s most promising students in order to develop a cadre of leaders to drive significant economic, political, and social development. This will be accomplished through university scholarships, partnerships, and student and faculty exchanges.
The government-to-government agreement with municipality Gjilan/Gnjilane will improve the local government service delivery performance.
