The program

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.

How you can help

This program provides an essential need to the lives of children and young people living with disabilities – the need for companionship and hope.  Volunteers on this program spend their time interacting with the children, playing games and activities with them and stimulating their minds.  This is an essential element to their care and provides stimulation, interaction and fun for those in the day care environment. Volunteers are needed to work one-on-one with the children, and to arrange small group activities. Activities could include working on the art therapy program which encourages the children to use their imagination and teaches them to make arts and crafts, or work with the staff on awareness campaigns in order to improve the rights of children and youth living with disabilities. The specialists at the centre will provide training and support, and will be available to assist where necessary. The job of a volunteer is not to substitute the specialists, but to provide much needed companionship for the children and youth.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways on this program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Organize games and activities for the children - sports, music, songs, dance, games etc
  • Create activities and entertain the children
  • Assist the fundraising department and help with updates to their website
  • Work with the staff on awareness campaigns

There are several new shopping malls, cinemas, concert halls and theatres with programs of a high standard and many bars, some providing live music. Tirana is a growing tourist destination.

Accomodatie

Volunteers on this program are accommodated in a comfortable Volunteer House in central Tirana. Each room accommodates up to 4 with shared bathroom and communal facilities. The house is equipped with a tidy kitchen and dining area where volunteers can prepare meals and snacks in a homely environment.

All standard amenities are available in the Volunteer House, including hot showers, Western style bathrooms, bed linen, a functional kitchen and Wi-Fi. An Albanian expression sums up the hospitality you can expect during your stay in Tirana - “Buke, kripe dhe zemer” (Bread, Salt and a warm heart).

Accommodation in Tirana is self-catered and food is not included in the program fees. Volunteers can opt to make use of the kitchen facilities to prepare meals or dine out at one of the many restaurants, bars and cafes within easy reach of the Volunteer House. Lunch options are varied and affordable at cafes and markets situated close to the program site.

Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Albanië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Albanië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Albanië.
