‘SETimes’ reports that authorities in Gjakova, western Kosovo are trying to cope with high unemployment, poor housing, and low school attendance among local minorities. Children in the district called the “Colony” grow up amid poverty, lack of opportunities, with no schooling, medical care, or future prospects. Most start begging on the streets or work in town. Gjakova mayor said that “The Task Force — composed of municipal authorities, Kosovo police and representatives of the communities and NGOs — is working to solve the problem”.
