We are a group of high school students who have come to anunderstanding that meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are of great importance for our community and Kosova in general. Although the MDGs pertain to a global agenda, they fit well with the reality of our own place.

Many of our peers in Kosova live in difficult circumstances. Poverty is widespread; many people are deprived of basic food. In villages around weencounter illiterate and uneducated children. Our mothers have no proper access to quality health and mortality rate for children under five is quite high. Access to water is difficult in remote areas. The river in the city is polluted and garbage around the streets keeps spreading.

More than half of the population of Kosova are youth. All the processes of development that happen in our coutnry affect us the youth. We want to be contributors of some of these processes through the promotion of MDGs and implementation of activities locally that strive to meet them.

We feel passionate about change and want to offer our energy and resources in iimproving these challenges that our community faces. We want to help in our capacity to meet the MDGs locally.
