One to One Children's Fund - Kosovo

Implementation of multi sensory rooms

One to One Children's Fund remedy and prevent the adverse impact of HIV/AIDS, disability and trauma on children, working hand in hand with communities to develop and implement projects which can be scaled and replicated.

Years: 2013, 2014, 2015

Approximately 20,000 children with special needs in Kosovo suffer from social exclusion in their daily life. Despite positive developments in recent years in the provision of social and family services, they are still woefully inadequate.

 

This partnership aims to improve the quality of care provided to circa 200 children with disabilities, through the establishment of one multi-sensory room per day care centre in two municipalities in Kosovo. These innovative facilities are vital to provide stimulation and improve the quality of life for some of the most severely disabled children in the country. The ALMT didn't hesitate in providing the funds for a second multi-esnsory room in Peja, Kosovo, after the first on in Prizran was such a success.

 

Research has shown that multisensory environments offer a wealth of benefits, often affording the participant and caregiver an opportunity to improve communications, enhance their understanding of each other, and build trust in their relationship.

 

The ALMT visited the project in February 2014 and were extremely impressed by both the construction and design of the multi-sensory room, but also the training of the staff working with it day to day. This project demonstrates the magnitude of change and ongoing development achievable with a small amount of money and a team of people with dedication and commitment to children with disabilities in Kosovo.
