Albin Kurti

Prime Minister Albin Kurti and the Minister of Finance, Labor and Transfers, Hekuran Murati, on Saturday participated in the launch of the "Piloting Project for the Reform of Social Assistance" in Kosovo, from which the head of the Government stated that with this project there will be no no more discrimination.

During the presentation, Kurti mentioned the "good works" of the Government to help certain categories.

"As early as September 2021, we helped with allowances for mothers and children. So far we have over 400 thousand children who benefit from these schemes. We allocated over 100 million euros to support pensioners and other social schemes. As the Government, we did not stop but continued with aid in several sectors. Our focus was on fundamentally reforming policy systems that were poorly designed. The design of the current social scheme is discriminatory because the moment a child in a family reaches the age of 5, the aid is cut off," said Kurti, reports Ekonomia Online.

Minister Murati announced that this pilot is also accessible in "E-Kosova".

"People who may be single parents and have children under 18 years old, people with disabilities, those who care for people with disabilities, will be treated as people who are looking for a job. This pilot is open and is in "E-Kosova" and in the filling centers and family members must fill out the application", he said.
