Daily Trip Report - July 24, 2003

Jill Wechsler -

Met with Laura Kryeziu (the country coordinator of the Hope Fellowship program) and Myesere Hoxha (the program coordinator for the new NAAC leadership program being conducted in Kosovo). The meeting was very positive. We spoke about the Hope Fellowship program, the new NAAC in-country program, and the Business and Leadership Clinic. Laura and Mesi had a lot of great suggestions about recruiting participants for the Young Leadership Clinic, for keeping the members involved and active after their training, and for cooperating on advocacy projects. They expressed interest in working together as the Clinic plans develop. Laura also suggested some women to talk to who have experience directly related to our project.

Had lunch with Arben, Merita, and the other Arben. They took me to a place that served burak, and Arben & Merita invited me to stay for a night at their home in Ferizaj. Arben was not able to obtain the adaptor for the UPS.

I visited ABA CEELI and spoke with Luan. Luan gave me a copy of some laws to photocopy, and I will come back for more later when I am done with those. We also spoke for a while about the Business and Leadership Clinic, about Luan's projects, and about things our groups might want to work together on in the future.

Ate dinner at Valza's home (stuffed peppers - very good!), then tried to meet with Liridon to see the movie. Unfortunately, we had some confusion about meeting, so I saw the movie by myself, but Liridon met me after the movie. We went for coffee with his friend who used to be the president of the student union at the Law Faculty and now works as an administrator for the Kosovo Police. He spoke very highly of a public administration training he attended and of the police instructor from the US Army who he trains under now.
