News / President of North Macedonia Official Visit to the RYCO Superschools Exchange in Skopje
The President of North Macedonia, Mr. Stevo Pendarovski, visited State School for Rehabilitation of Children and Youth with Visual Impairments “Dimitar Vlahov” (DURDMOV) in Skopje, together with the ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of North Macedonia, H.E. David Geer and ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Republic of North Macedonia H.E. Petra Drexler, during the exchange with the partner school from Sarajevo “Centre for Blind and Visually Impaired Children and Youth”.
The exchange between schools from Skopje and Sarajevo aims to facilitate the inclusion of visually impaired students in the Western Balkans through a series of activities in music, sport, and art specially tailored to their needs. The director of DURDMOV Boban Spasencovski said that with projects like Superschools, students and teachers can follow the trends, providing the schools with EU perspective, more experience and education.
The exchange is organised under Superschools, a project of the Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO), that supports schools from the Western Balkan in promoting intercultural learning, dialogue and peacebuilding. The project is co-financed by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and jointly implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and RYCO.
