April 2, 2021


Amount Raised






– NGO Partner: YWCA Albania
– Theme: Education, Youth, Earthquake Relief
– Location: Lezhe
– Date: Winter/Spring 2021
– Amount Raised: $15,541
– Partners: Municipality of Lezhe, Gjergj Kastrioti High School

– Description: The “Gjergj Kastrioti” school in Lezha was heavily damaged by the Albanian earthquake, and students had to be relocated to another school for a period of time. The YWCA, in collaboration with the school, therefore prepared a detailed list of the students from the poorest families so that they could be targeted for educational assistance, and prepared 640 packages containing learning materials, books, and hygiene products. The supplies and books were chosen based on the age, gender, and development stages of the children to facilitate the access of children in the learning process and to help them to be safe and healthy during the pandemic period. In addition, 30 teachers, 100 parents, and 100 students received training with regard to addressing mental health issues related to the earthquake.
