WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to offer life changing care to children, bringing people together on a journey from brokenness to wholeness.
Vulnerable Children & Families
Despite enormous development progress over the past 2 decades, many families are still living in precarious situations and are struggling to ensure a minimum wellbeing. Good progresses have been done in creating a functional social protection system, however social care services are still limited and depending on NGOs.
All forms of abuse towards children are unacceptable. It is or duty to keep children safe, to promote their wellbeing and protect them from abuse and harm. Child protection is the “prevention of and response to abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence against children” (CPMS).
Attention to faith development must go hand in hand with all other aspects of development (Dan Brewster). When spirituality is given the attention it deserves, research shows that we can have a positive contribution to children’s lives and development.
Trauma & Crisis
Trauma can be experimented because of a variety of situations: as a single event (a natural disaster, the loss of a loved one, a serious accident or an assault) or repeatedly through witnessing domestic violence, being in a war zone or experiencing longstanding emotional or physical neglect or abuse. All those events can have a lasting impact on children well-being and development, bringing pain and suffering in their lives.
Domestic violence is an issue that affects all spheres of the society. It is not just about physical violence but more widely about the control of a victim by an intimate partner. In Albania, statistics show that at least half of all women have experienced one or more types of domestic violence. To end it and support victims, the whole community needs to stand up and to work together.
