PROJECT CODE: UPA/MLTV/08
Background GOOD MUMMY SCHOOL KOSOVO was founded 2006 in the urban slums of
Kosovo valley in Lubya parish to help support the marginalized slum
orphans and vulnerable children in the area. It was due to lack any basic

attain basic education. We currently support more than 180 kids at our
school- GOOD MUMMY SCHOOL KOSOVO has the kindergarten wing and
lower primary.
