Udhetim i Lire Distributes Interfaith Coloring Books to Children

Udhetim i Lire - Liberi di Viaggiare, a URI member group in Durres, Albania, distributed interfaith coloring books to children in underserved Roma and Egyptian communities.

The children were very happy to receive the books and started coloring the images right away. We are very grateful to Baraza CC for publishing the book with support from URI Europe CC (two other URI member groups).

The translation into Albanian, Bosnian and North Macedonian languages and the distribution of the books to the children is a joint project with four European Cooperation Circles (member groups): Udhetim i Lire CC in Durres, Albania; Youth for Peace CC and Balkan as a Soul Bridge CC in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina; and Community Center Tetovo (CDI) CC in Tetovo, North Macedonia.

See more photos on the URI Europe page.

The coloring books were also used with much success in programs with Balkan as a Soul Bridge, another URI member group in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The URI network enables projects like these to spread and benefit a wide range of people.
