The project is about publishing a book that tackles war and post-war experience in Kosovo, and appreciation of life in peace and harmony.

PROJECT PROPOSAL 

The project is about publishing a book that tackles some parts of war diary in Kosovo and post war experience that helped me to recover and appreciate life in peace and harmony with all community members.                  

Description of the project:

In my book I will promote psychosocial education and urge of society to believe on transformation of Kosovar's from war nightmare and anxiety to self- search improvement; from perception of hate to love, peace and reconciliation.

In this book I’m traveling with two time dimension, war & peace with sound of love, hope, cry and joy, with colors and melodies that are produced from us and all community members in Balkan.

Book will present lyrical  and epic writing and poetic prose, the book will tune readers from war story to passion for life and humanity and reflects beauty of the nature in Kosovo and neighboring countries.

Book itself will promote activism toward personal development and community building;

Will encourage communities to read books, and inform younger generation that didn’t experience war for importance of Peace Building.

The crisis of the book in Kosovo derives from many reasons starting from transition of society to fragile institution, lack of funds to supporting literacy, art and culture.  

Translating this book in English will help me to introduce my book to broader readers and therefore increase my incomes to translate in German language in addition.

Writers existed thanks to readers therefore I’m kindly requesting to support me finalizing and publish my book.

Direct beneficiaries:   It is expected that a large number of people will reach books in hard copy and e-book form.

The direct beneficiaries of this project will be approximately 3.000 readers of Gjakova municipality and Kosovo.

It’s planned to translate book in English language within budget, and German language in near future.

Indirect beneficiaries: Readers through contacts with their sibling, peers, media reports etc. Families and community members who live in the area will indirectly benefit from the heightened discourse and new level of understanding for books.

Public Awareness Activities: Organization of a media campaign (one TV emission, and four radio emissions during five month, radio activities at literacy and cultural programs.

Timeline: A suggested timeline for these events is May/ September 2017. Starting from Preparation of project; Redacting, designing and Publishing; Introduction to public, media, schools and institutions 

Implementing Partners: Literature club "Gjon Nikoll Kazazi” from Gjakova; Ten (10) high schools and faculties; 10 volunteers;
