"2021 was not an easy year on children, adolescents and their families in Albania or other parts of the world. Health, social and economic situation of families continued to be challenged significantly because of Covid-19 pandemic. As children, families, institutions and organizations strived to build resiliency and adapt, World Vision persistently stayed by their side, impacting lives of thousands through humanitarian, development and advocacy interventions in 26 municipalities in the country.
As a result of the organization’s strategy review process in 2021, recognizing its strengths in the sector, World Vision Albania took the decision to focus on adolescent programming. This further narrowing of the organization’s programmatic focus is expected to increase relevance, impact and sustainability of interventions in the future,"- says Eljona Boçe Elmazi, National Director World Vision Albania.
