The initiative is taken as a response to the lack of childcare services for children. According to a survey done by Kosovo Women's Network (KWN) about child care options in Kosovo in 2016, around15.5% of children in Kosovo use the child care system. Currently existing childcare services are inadequate and don't meet the demand, especially in the capital, Prishtina. On the other hand, reliance on family members for unpaid care services prevails.
It may sound habitually, but with changing social dynamics, the demand for quality childcare services in Kosovo is growing. In addition to the high rate of unemployment among women, which accounts for about 36.6%, childcare services provided by the private sector are turning into an opportunity for employment.
