The education sector in Kosovo includes more than 1200 school facilities. Many of them have been damaged in the conflict 1999/2000 but most of them show the effects of more than a decade of neglected maintenance. In a three year period the program of SDC/FOR included the repair and the construction of 25 schools for a total amount of CHF 8. 2 Mio. However the lack of adequate maintenance of the school premises still remained a major problem.
