Do you have a passion for helping those born into a life of disability?

Volunteers are urgently needed to contribute their time and energy at a day-care centre for children and young adults with disabilities. This specialist centre is located in the village of Prush, in the suburbs of Tirana City and provides psycho-socio-educative services for 50 children and young adults ranging from 6 – 25 years of age. With three floors which include rooms for rest and play, a gym and computer area, as well as physiotherapy, speech therapy, medical and dentistry services, purpose built ramps and equipment that meets international standards, the centre is well resourced. The garden, with its many flowerbeds and trees is a treasured part of the centre as it provides a beautiful outlook and gives the children the chance to enjoy the fresh air as well as the quiet and calm surroundings. The centre also raises rabbits which make great companions for the children and help with therapy sessions. For volunteers who truly want to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children, this wonderful program serves to protect and care for those who need it most. 

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide essential companionship to vulnerable children and young people in Albania

·       Improve the future prospects of disabled children and young people in Albania

·       Give vulnerable children and young people quality care, compassion and a sense of hope

·       Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.
