Help for the Prizren Seminary

Within the ongoing project KOSMET IS SERBIA, the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs conducted another in a row of great actions of helping the Serbian people on Kosovo and Metohija. On this occasion, the help of our organization reached Prizren, where we provided help for the Serbian Orthodox Seminary St. Cyril and Methodius. We provided cooling device with command panel and hermetic doors in the total amount of 547.000 dinars (RECEIPT). The Seminary currently has over 50 students and professors and with each new generation the needs for preserving food received by the public kitchens on Kosovo and Metohija are increasing.




The work of the Prizren Seminary commenced in 1871 in the then Old Serbia which was under the Ottoman Empire occupation. Its founder Sima Andrejevic Igumanov was born and grown in Prizren, and he invested his entire fortune and his life in order to establish education of Serbian children in Prizren and surrounding.


The Seminary stopped working in June 1999 after the NATO and UCK terrorist occupation, when the school was moved to Hilandar metoh in Nis. During the pogrom in March 17 2004 the Albanian extremists set on fire the complex of buildings and schools of the Prizren Seminary, mined the St. George Church and set on fire several churches in the town, as well as dozens of Serbian houses near the Seminary.


Thank God and with the engagement of the Eparchy of Raska and Prizren on September 19 in 2011, the work of the Seminary St. Cyril and Methodius was restored, and the first generation of students was admitted. It gradually restored the life and presence of Serbs in the town.





Charity organization Serbs for Serbs continues in conducting the projects of help to the endangered Serbian families on Kosovo and Metohija in 2015 in order to provide the survival of our people in their ancestral homes.
