The “E Ka Kush e Ka” series seeks to include children and adults in a series of books and games through which they discover and rediscover cultural heritage as a bridge, linking us to the complexities of the world around us. Cultural heritage is not only about learning facts; it is an ideal educational and entertaining support for learning about and exploring new things, other people and our society. It is an instrument that helps with self-reflection, skills and mental vivacity… a path toward citizenship and mutual respect, where the search for meaning is foremost.
The collection is used also as a practical support for the Heritage Ateliers, fun and engaging activities for children that are organized in partnership with educational institutions, museums and various sites across Albania. Since 2014 CHwB has held more than 72 Heritage Ateliers in several cities with more than 1600 children and more than 250 teachers/educators and museum education specialists.
The E KA KUSH E KA series has also been endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports as part of the National Program “Doing Homework”. The “Don’t Get Mad” sub-series has been awarded the 2018 European Heritage Stories prize by the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
