First Children's Embassy in the World - Medjashi

Initiative For Better Mutual Understanding 

The lack of communication and the overburden with prejudices among the high-school students of Macedonian and Albanian nationalities, can be seen more and more often in the everyday conflict situations at the high-schools, as well as outside them, among young people in general.

In order to provide space for non-viloent communication, the First Children Embasssy in the world - Medjashi, initiated a new project that contains the following two components that will contribute to improving the communication among high-school students of Macedonian and Albanian nationality at the medical school in Skopje:

-         educational and organizational component that includes training for part of the peadagogical staff and establishing an informal net of teachers for non-viloent conflict analysis

-         active component for communication, that includes organizing workshops for the high-school students and various student-initiated activities.


From 27 June to 04 July 2003, at the Radika Hotel in Mavrovo, a training session in the field of non-viloent conflict analysis was organized. Twenty teachers of Macedonian and Albanian nationality from the medical scool in Skopje, took part at the training. Some of the training's goals were: development of the interethnic dialogue and the mutual trust and communication; development of the awareness of human rights by developing the awareness of the minority rights and the right of diversity; development of the participants' sensibility for direct and structural violence; constructive conflict management in order to prevent the the violence, in the form of non-violent conflict analysis, encouraging the participants' constructive engagement in the process of building the interethnic cooperation at the medical high-school and wider.

The training team included: Blerim Jasari (Centre for Balkan Cooperation - Ljoja, Tetovo); Ana Bitoljanu (Medjashi Embassy); Nenad Vukosavljevik (Centre for Non-vilent Action - Belgrade) and Gordana Pirkovska - Zmijanac (FCEW Medjashi - Skopje).

This project was financed by the Institute for Sustainable Communities and the United States Agency for International Development. 

Job Vacancies

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?

Violeta Tanceva – Zlateva
My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
