Our projects in Albania:

Albania is one of the poorest countries of Europe (every 4th person lives below subsistence level).

Especially women, children and ethnic minorities suffer from a society marked by poverty. It is mainly them who are concerned by the consequences of unemployment, low educational chances, unaffordable medical supply and domestic violence.
