Kosovo Hope was founded in 2008 by Berat and Valdete Gegaj. The primary work of Kosovo Hope has been focused on building bridges between communities in order to bring hope to Kosovo through the sharing of cultures, knowledge, experiences, and ideas. We have worked hard to develop an exchange of cultures between Kosovo and the United States by hosting exchanges of students, doctors, police officers, and politicians. We seek to use our connections and resources to learn from, love, and serve all those we encounter. In doing so, we invest in current leaders and the next generation of Kosovo in order to influence and develop leaders who are trustworthy and strive to honor God by serving their communities.


Our vision is to see bridges of peace, trust, and hope in the Balkans through leaders that are faithful to God and all people.


Kosovo Hope exists to empower current and future leaders through spiritual, educational, and economic development.
