Kurzbeschreibung:

Projektziel


The project aims to sustainably improve the living conditions of 160 families and vulnerable children in the regions of Fier, Korca, Lezha and Shkodra in Albania, to prevent their engagement in unsafe migration and to facilitate their reintegration by improving their access to quality social services, education, vocational and income generating opportunities. It also aims at increasing the capacities of 50 professionals in Albania to ensure the reintegration of returned families and to work closely with families at risk of unsafe migration.


Erwartete Ergebnisse


The project is expected to:

• Sustainably improve the conditions of 80 vulnerable children and families in Albania at risk of unsafe migration

• Facilitate the reintegration of another 80 returned children and families from Albania by improving their access to quality social services, vocational and income generating activities (IGA).

• 80 children from these two groups (both at risk of unsafe migration and returned children) will benefit from educational support through after school lessons – helping their inclusion, integration and learning.

• Strengthen the capacities of at least 50 professionals in Albania who are working with and for returned or at risk families.
