Local Municipal Coordinators (part time; service contracts)

Project: Intercultural Resources in Kosovo (INTERK)

Caritas Switzerland (CaCH) is implementing projects in Kosovo for more than 20 years.

The focus is on the income generation and migration.

The INTERK (Intercultural Resources in Kosovo) project is about the income of young people of all ethnic groups living in Kosovo. Through training courses in entrepreneurship, job application processes and creative proposal writing, the income generating competencies of 50 young people are fostered. This is done through workshops, youth camps and 18 small-scale projects.
