During the “Regional” camp of TOKA, campers built a reading corner for the students of the primary school “Nëna Terezë” in the village of Teneshdoll, in Prishtina.
The project idea came from the teacher Ariana Baxhaku, and was brought into life by our diverse 40 campers from Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia and Greece during the camp service learning sessions.
While working on the service learning projects the campers not only had fun, socialized and explored their creativity, but they also developed their woodworking, painting, planning and teamworking skills.
This reading corner was the first project that the campers implemented as part of TOKA’s “Improve a Public School” campaign.
However, this is only the first project of the campaign!
In 2018, a total of 7 public schools in Kosovo have been improved becuse of our campers work.
Below is a list of all projects you can have a look at through pictures.
