FOA was created in 2009 by Group 10 Peace Corps Volunteers as they left Albania with a collective feeling to continue the Peace Corps experience.  This interest to create FOA was sparked by a desire to remember experiences, speak Albanian and connect with others who are interested in this special part of the world. 

Now, FOA is providing assistance to charitable endeavors, including community self-help, development and educational projects in Albania through small grants to current Peace Corps volunteers working with local organizations.
