The last day in Peja is reserved for a project evaluation and saying goodbye to our new friends
Tuesday 27th was our last full day in Peja. It was largely reserved for our internal evaluation of the overall project. This step is important not only for us and the Consortium, but in the grander scheme of things it is a vital step for the future EU Aid Volunteers. We tested things and approaches and our experiences, like this of the other VInCaB sub-projects, will influence the final design of this new EU organization. We feel honored to be part of this process.
The remainder of the day was occupied by various preparations. Gifts and certificates needed to be finished, food had to be bought and prepared, because in the evening we had a big party with everyone involved in the exercise and the VinCaB Kosovo project. Like every good party, that meant a lot of preparatory work, but since we were really looking forward to spending some more time with “our” volunteers in Peja, it was work we gladly did.
This showed and in the end the party was a he success with dancing and singing and many happy faces. It also was the time to say goodbye, however, and while we are looking forward to returning to our homes, we’re also sad to leave Peja and the people that have received us so kindly. In the last two weeks we have made new friends and learned so much about Kosovo and its people – it was a great experience!
