The Head of State highlighted the importance of the fact that these children need to feel loved and contribution that every member of our society can make. “I pledge that you will have my support whenever needed. These children need and will have the support of the state in every moment”.

President Begaj noted that “even though this is a special education school, it is important to strongly insist on comprehensive education programs, to make sure no one feels forlorn and that everyone is given the opportunity to be an active part of the society.
