United Macedonian Diaspora: 6 Young Individuals to Spend 3 Weeks in Macedonia

Some 6 young people of Macedonian heritage from the United States and Canada will be staying in Macedonia for three weeks during the summer, during which time they will have the chance to learn more about the homeland of their ancestors, the country’s cultural heritage and to make friends with each other and with their peers in Macedonia.

Through the Birthright Macedonia project of the United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) and its local partner, the Macedonian Center for International Cooperation (MCIC), the young adults in the next three weeks will serve as interns at the office of the minister for foreign investments, the faculty of veterinary medicine of the Skopje University, EuroBPO, the Museum of Macedonian Struggle and at MCIC.

Meto Koloski, UMD chairman, said the project had been conceived and developed by Peter Dallas, a member of the UMD Advisory Council, to encourage youth of Macedonian heritage to visit the land of their ancestors, transfer their knowledge here and learn more about Macedonia.

“UMD is an organization focused on educating and activating the young generation to cooperate, help and give back to the homeland,” Koloski said adding young people were showing interest to learn more about the homeland.

The Birthright Macedonia project was inaugurated in 2015 when four young people from the US and Canada resided in Macedonia for three weeks.
