“WE LIKE DEMOCRACY” is a project that its solitary aim is to prompt the opinion in a straight path of the democracy. It is about the people of Kosova that now are (in evolution) changing their own attire promising for the better future of a democratic system. The people of Kosova now is having more possibilities then before to be involved in democratic developing processes of the society, developing very important decisions for their own future.
**The generation that is rapidly growing in Kosovo consists 70% of youth, so there is and urgent need for these kind of programs because the generations including; parents, teachers and educators there is still in their minds communist system spirit and we can conclude that they know a little about democracy.
**It is a big urge as we are facing a big challenge where the justice must rule together with freedom, peace and to bring the democracy for everybody in this cusp of Europe where there still is a small part of the land hearing an echo of democracy.
**The motto of this program is the raising of the knowledge for democracy influencing the participation of the youth in the transitional society where we are fighting and trying for a better future as the democracy is anticipated to have peace, welfare and freedom for everybody.
This is a supported based on the sense of improvement that consist “citizens discussions” in democracy.

EVALUATION â€“ Results of the project
Non-Governmental Organization “Rrjedha”, made the interview with many young people about the idea of this kind of project and also interview with several Municipal Departments of Education in the region and is made a public discussion on local TV station “VALI”, about this matter, where participated the different sort of people, and as a common conclusion was quoted that this kind of training is a need to them. Currently Kosovo is in phase of building a new modern democratic pluralistic system, the young generation has a lack of knowledge of the democratic ways, therefore a project will impact on strengthening and supporting of young generation in order to reduce ethnic and political divisions among Kosovars and provides equal opportunities among the large of people and prepare for playing a more active role as citizen. Through the trainings there will be opportunity to take some examples from other Eastern European countries, that have successfully overcome transition period and shown great value of democratic affirmation.
The outcomes of the project will be expected as following:
Reducing conflict among ethnicities and parties and negative phenomena in our society.
Approaching youth minorities among with majority, in consolidation of democratic society.
Get knowledge of democratic ways from other Democratic European countries.
Increasing concise and responsibility of citizens and society for future changes.
This project will be ended in seven months and two weeks.
The number of the participants will be 896 persons, where half of them will be females.
178 males and 179 Albanian females age 18 â€“ 35.
62 males and 62 Albanian females age 35 â€“ 60. (Educators, Teachers & Parents)
98 males and 98 females from the minority age18 â€“ 35.
32 males and 32 females from the minority aged 35 â€“ 60. (Educators, Teachers & Parents)
155 participants will be from UNMIK, CIVPOL, TMK, Municipality, and Department of Education etc.
Project purpose (what goals will be achieved and how the results will be determined/measured):
The “We like the Democracy” project envisions that approximately 1000 citizens living in the Gjilan Region will participate either directly be impacted by this project.
There are many similar questions going on without unclear responds:
The youth says; “We like democracy”.
But how to understand it when we know a little about that?
How to develop and increase the awareness of civil society for a new democratic decision-making processes?
How to learn from its definition?
How to complete and how to put into practical way?
The generation that is rapidly growing in Kosovo consists 70% of youth, so there is and urgent need for these kind of programs because the generations including; parents, teachers and educators there is still in their minds communist system spirit and we can conclude that they know a little about democracy.
Passing through many challenges on these recent years in a way of development and implementation of standardized Civil Society, this project will help on increasing of Capacity of Civil Society to develop, lead and positively respond to community initiatives by introducing them to democratic decision - making processes by training youth about community - based development initiatives, strengthening links between all ethnicities and community organizations. This project as a capacity building program seeks to foster democratic decision â€“making processes at the community level while bolstering links between communities, civil society and civil institutions. Therefore Kosovars will not be as “beneficiaries”, but rather as full partners in the decision â€“making processes that affect their lives of societal change.
It is a big urge as we are facing a big challenge where the justice must rule together with freedom, peace and to bring the democracy for everybody in this cusp of Europe where there still is a small part of the land hearing an echo of democracy
Project Justification (please describe the need or problems the project will solve and the target groups):
Key to the achievement of civil recovery is the presence of the dynamic civil sector. This suggests not only the creation of an enabling environment for pluralistic decision-making and governance, but also the creation of durable civil institutions that can advocate, promote on behalf of and address the needs of specific constituencies â€“ whether those constituencies be communities, individuals with special needs or the marginalized.
Improvement the quantity and quality of information available to citizens, as well as upgrading the awareness of democratic processes.
Provision a higher level of interethnic development process and building community capacity to advocate for their needs.
The youth generation is going to have a better vision for the future.
Influence on elimination of conflicts among parties and against minorities.
Knowledge about functions rule of law in democratic systems, civil society.
The goal of the project sustains to the citizens in manner to act by self and to them that act to have a grater control above their future.
METHODS - ACTIVITIES
Having in mind the fact that the society in Kosova has just came out from a wild regime â€“communism and having in mind that this society has responsibility for the future.
This society hasn’t sufficient knowledge about democratic system in education of people to make them possible to act as an ordinary citizen and to feel their human rights and to take responsibilities for the planning of the future in the society model emphasized by the freedom, responsibility, honor, tolerance and equal rights, research for the human conscience and consecration against the universal welfare for enforcement of the Rule of Law and efforts of the citizens for Democracy.
