Strengthening the Bond between the Day Care Center for Children in Street Situation and the University of Prishtina


In a recent event at the University of Pristina, Egzona Gashi, the coordinator of the Day Center for Children in Street Situation, took the stage to present the impactful work of Tdh Kosovo, with a specific focus on the services provided by the Center. The audience for this presentation comprised first-year students from the Department of Psychology of Prishtina University, creating an opportunity to showcase the vital role psychology plays in addressing the needs of vulnerable children.

These presentations mark a significant milestone in an enduring collaboration between the Day Center and the University. This partnership extends beyond a one-time event, as it includes the possibility of internships for students. By offering internships, the Day Center aims to provide practical training and valuable firsthand experience to budding psychologists, enabling them to make a tangible difference in the lives of marginalized children.

During the presentation, Gashi shed light on the comprehensive range of services provided by the Day Center. These services encompass not only basic care and support, but also specialized interventions tailored to the unique needs of children in street situations. From educational programs to psychological counseling, the Center plays a crucial role in ensuring the well-being and development of these vulnerable children.

By exposing the first-year psychology students to the work of the Day Center, Gashi aimed to ignite a sense of passion and social responsibility within the next generation of psychologists. It was an opportunity for students to understand the real-world challenges faced by children in street situations and the pivotal role that psychology can play in their lives. The presentation served as an invitation for students to actively engage and contribute to the cause of supporting marginalized children in their future careers.

The collaboration between the Day Center and the University not only benefits the students but also strengthens the capacity and reach of the organization. By involving young minds and fresh perspectives, the Day Center can tap into innovative ideas and approaches, fostering an environment of continuous improvement and growth. Moreover, it nurtures a sense of social consciousness and empathy among future psychologists, preparing them to be advocates for the rights and well-being of vulnerable populations.
