June 14, 2016 The Executive Director of CDF Ms. Nermin Mahmuti, lead partner of the AKT-LS Program implementing consortium and Mr. Svetislav Ivanović Mayor of Novo Brdo/Novobërdë Municipality participated in the ground breaking ceremony for the project “Construction of the multipurpose building” in village Koretiste/Koretishtë.

The multipurpose building is planned to have 340 m2 and its construction will be financed by USAID AKT-LS Program with 99,555 USD whereas the Municipality of Novo Brdo/Novobërdë will invest an additional 65,489 USD.

The project will directly benefit about 1300 inhabitants who are lacking proper community space. The community multipurpose center will offer the inhabitants of Koretiste/Koretishtë better conditions for cultural and social events thus increasing the opportunities for interaction between communities living in Novo Brdo/Novobërdë Municipality.

The Implementation of this project is particularly important for the community of Koretiste/Koretishte, in ensuring equal cultural and social development service provision to their citizens comparable to communities in the region.
