In the first war in Kosovo 1998 about 20, 000 people fled from their homes to Albania. Albania had at that time no or only poorly maintained infrastructure to host these refugees. SDC/SHA therefore launched a program for a temporary integration of the refugee families in Albania. During their presence and still after the return of the majority of the Kosovar refugees, SDC/SHA maintained a rehabilitation program for schools and kindergartens in Albania (1998-2001). The kindergarten in Kulle is part of this intervention.
