USAID 2ND FASE OF SCHOOL RENOVATIONS
The USAID Primary Education Project (PEP) and Municipality of Tetovo marked the launch of the second phase of school renovations at the “Lirija” primary school in Tetovo.
During this phase, PEP will renovate 32 schools in 32 municipalities across Macedonia.
“Lirija” is one of the first beneficiaries of this assistance, receiving over $30,000 to replace old wooden windows. During the ceremony, USAID officials joined the Mayor of Tetovo, PEP team and the School Principal to symbolically mark the launch of renovations by dismantling an old window and installing a new one.
PEP will renovate up to 100 primary schools during its five years of implementation. The project’s renovation component supports the creation of better learning environment and the transfer of responsibilities over school facilities to municipal governments. The project also works to increase the use of information technology, to improve the quality of math and science education, and to strengthen school-based assessment in Macedonian primary schools.
MD: Great project, it was really time for schools in the country to be renovated
