Education is a human right, and in Kosovo, it is mandatory for children between the ages of six and fifteen. But there are kids who are not going to school. Some were never enrolled. Others dropped out.

To address the issue, UNICEF is working closely with authorities in Kosovo – to address the factors that are keeping children out of school, and to get them back into the classroom.

According to UNICEF, getting every child into school is essential to reducing global poverty, improving health, fostering peace and bolstering democracy.
