News / Transforming Education in Albania: Thousands of children begin the new School Year in state-of-art facilities
More than 11 thousand pupils and 748 teachers in Albania start this school year in brand-new facilities thanks to the support of the EU4Schools programme. As part of this programme, over 40 schools are completed and 16 are currently under construction. These modern schools and kindergartens are stronger, safer, and more accessible, built together with the local community.
“Proud to be back in Albania today and to see the amazing results we have achieved with our implementing partner UNDP in Albania. The EU’s quick and effective response to the post-earthquake recovery process in the education sector in Albania is now a great reality for the Albanian people,” said Charge d’affaires, Ambassador Luigi Soreca.
“EU4Schools” is a Programme funded by the European Union in response to the recovery process following the earthquake of November 26, 2019. The Programme is being implemented by the UNDP, in cooperation with the Albanian Government. It aims to support Albanian citizens in eleven affected municipalities, namely: Kruja, Durrës, Kurbin, Kamza, Kavaja, Tirana, Mirdita, Lezha, Rrogozhina, Shijak, Vora in the area of education. The Programme will deliver rapid assistance to help restore education services in local communities in order to ensure that students loose minimum school and learning days, and to enable the gradual normalization of life of affected population in those municipalities, with education being the foremost priority.
