What problem are you trying to solve?
Kosovo faces numerous challenges and one of the major challenges is: corruption. In Corruption Perception Index, Kosovo ranks 112 out of 176 countries; this ranking indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories in the index. In other instances of Transparency International, Kosovo is the most corrupted country in Europe. Fighting corruption is a massive topic. Therefore, our innovative idea tends to fight corruption in education sector, more specifically in the recruitment of school staff in primary and secondary level in public schools. This idea emerged from a personal experience. I am a teacher and I have noticed that there are teachers with a degree in history teaching also computer science or a degree in biology and teaching mathematics. According to Programme International Student Assessment, Kosovo is the 3rd worst country in the world in the education assessment. This is why our problem is a very well defined and specific for its innovative solution.
