Gracanica Learning Center
Gracanica Learning Center (GLC)
Located in one of the largest Serbian speaking communities in Kosovo, Gracanica Learning Center serves approximately 80 Roma children daily. The center is staffed by two facilitators and 6 tutors. Afrim Osmani, the Center coordinator, is a very respected both community leader and religious figure in Gracanica.
The Gracanica Learning Center focuses on pre-school and primary education with a special kindergarten program as well. Balkan Sunflowers has implemented programs in Gracanica since 2001. The Learning Center opened as the Gracanica Education Center in April 2004. In 2007, the Municipality and Irish and Finnish KFOR units together built a building for the Center, an recognition of the impact the Center has had in enabling Gracanica Roma children to stay and succeed in school.
