Shala children among the members of the little school that is being started in this far away village by Shtjefen Gjeçovi, in Thethi, Albania.
Education is a fundamental right, yet those who need it most, are the least likely to get the opportunity to attend and complete school. Our future is only as bright as the future of our children. When we invest in our children’s education, it doesn’t just benefit them, it benefits all of us. They will lift up their family and community.
Give the Gift of Education
Make it Monthly or One Time Gift.
It starts with you. When you become a monthly donor, your investment, your support of our programming year-round, makes it possible for us create opportunities they need. Start giving monthly today and you are joining a special group of monthly donors committed to make education a reality for all.
Like you, they believe in the power of education. So do we. Your commitment to giving the gift of education means we can keep ours to provide scholarship grants to alleviate financial burden and the opportunity finish school.
Help us keep Adea in School!
Adea is an Albanian student from Mitrovica, attending high school in North Carolina, USA.
She was accepted into The St. David’s School college preparatory school in Raleigh with a scholarship for the junior year, which she completed successfully. She reapplied for the scholarship her senior year, and it was again renewed.
Adea’s US host, however, who financed her stay for her junior year of high school, is unable to support her financially for Adea’s living expenses for the senior year. Those expenses include books, transportation, health insurance, food, standardized testing (AP, SAT, ACT), school events, college applications, among others.
After high school, her goal is to attend medical school to become a doctor. She says: “I want to get into pre-med and then attend medical school and become a doctor, which is my dream. I want to be a doctor because I want to help people. As an Albanian, I grew up hearing things such as, “Health above all!”. I have been taught to value health greatly, and I believe that one of the best ways to make people’s lives better is by helping them achieve good health.”
The Albanian Institute is a registered non-profit charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our EIN 45-5474647. Contributions to the Albanian Institute Educational Fund are fully tax-deductible.
