Rebuilding Kindergarten in Suto Orizari

Project summary

    The goal of the project is to rebuild the April 8th Kindergarten in the Municipality of Suto Orizari that was destroyed by fire on 28 February 2017. The kindergarten is the only such facility in the municipality, which has a predominantly Roma population of over 17,000 (according to 2002 census data). It also houses a daycare center for street children. The project will directly help more than 200 families, most of them of Roma ethnicity, whose children, ranging in age from 2-5, are enrolled in the preschool education system, as well as 100 Roma street children aged 4-18.

Activity

    The project will redesign and rebuild the facility to create a safer, warmer and disability-friendly environment that will be easier to maintain and less expensive to operate (including through energy-efficiency improvements) and adhere to the latest standards for indoor and outdoor structures. It will also expand capacity by providing for nursery care of children between 9-24 months – a new service that will give local parents more time for employment.

Results:

    The project will redesign and rebuild the facility to create a safer, warmer and disability-friendly environment that will be easier to maintain and less expensive to operate (including through energy-efficiency improvements) and adhere to the latest standards for indoor and outdoor structures.

The result of the rebuild of the kindergarten is a modern space for 200 children from 2-5 years old on a newly modern space of 1225 m2.
