IIEP finalist at the USAID Photo Contest on Civilian-Military Cooperation under the category “Peace & Security”

DOD (ODC Macedonia) financially supported the improvement of the schooling conditions through USAID Interethnic Integration in Education Project (IIEP) in Macedonia.

On a sunny spring day, through sport and fun activities, students, teachers, parents, local communities and representatives of the USAID and DOD celebrated the accomplishments in advancing interethnic integration and collaboration. These young girls and boys cherished every moment of this celebration and the joint photos taken are part of their life story.

Photo source: The photo is from the archive of Macedonian Civic Education Center (MCEC) and it was taken in 2015 in the primary school Bratstvo Edinstvo, Municipality of Ohrid.

The photo will be announced and displayed during USAID’s Event on May 16 for National Military Appreciation Month at which Administrator Gayle Smith will give remarks, along with DCHA Acting Assistant Administrator Tom Staal.
