“Our objective is to find a solution for everyone”

Many people who return to Kosovo after spending a long time abroad might have experienced different trauma. Others find it difficult to get a job in Kosovo – and this can also have a negative impact on their mental health. The German Information Centre for Migration, Vocational Training and Career (DIMAK Kosovo) in Pristina therefore provides psychosocial support for both returnees and locals. “These people have shows/brings different problems – and our objective is to find a solution for everyone”, says Nexhmedin Basha, a reintegration advisor at DIMAK. He has a master's degree in psychology, with a focus on psychosocial counseling and career guidance. In an interview, he tells us how the counselling service works.

A better future for my family

My name is Agim and I come from Kosovo. I used to work in the marble industry, but the pay was bad. The wages didn't allow me to support my family. So in 2015 I took my wife and three children to Germany. We applied for asylum.
