COUNTRY OVERVIEW



The GIZ programme „Social Inclusion through Sport in the Balkan Region“ seeks to closely cooperate with local networks consisting of municipalities, NGOs, schools, kindergartens and sport clubs, which are engaged in developing and implementing local S4D strategies in the following countries of the Western Balkans: North Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The activities of the networks focus on strengthening the capacities of coaches, trainers, PE teachers, social/youth workers and young professionals to use sport, physical activity and games as  instruments for social inclusion of marginalized groups and community development. They raise awareness of S4D by staging social inclusive sport activities, improving the accessibility and increasing the participatory conditions of sport grounds and equipment. Networking, exchange and cooperation among different stakeholders on local, national and regional level fosters social cohesion and learning within communities and across borders.

In Kosovo, the RAE community in Fushe Kosova features large numbers of individuals who usually do not complete primary education (although this obligation is protected by law) and who perform heavy manual labour at a very young age.

The Sport for Development Strategy Action Plan aims to promote the integration of vulnerable groups in society, especially youth and girls. This strategy leads the cooperation between the local government, primary and secondary schools, civil society and the local sports community. Through sport and physical activity, the network addresses and works on the needs of vulnerable groups such as education, promotion of intercultural dialogue, health, socialization and social protection.

The sport-pedagogical qualification of coaches and teachers is the main component of our advanced education and training programmes in the field of S4D. Below you will find workshop documents from Kosovo which give you some insight into workshop contents and discussions.
