Sport/Training Equipment for PE and Founding a Volleyball Team
Vau-Dejes, Albania - Damien Burge & Ervin Buca

The Friends of Albania will help provide sports equipment for the school. The equipment will be used to enrich the physical education classes as there is minimal resources currently. Further, the equipment will be used to establish the first Vau Dejes sports teams to be able to compete against other schools in the area.

Library and Media Center Improvements – Shkoder
Shkoder, Albania - Erik Carlson, Elida Alushi & Irma Bilali

We are making several small improvements to the Shejnaze Juka Foreign Language School’s English and Albanian Library and building a media center, to be used by our students and the non-profit organization Albanian Audiolibra. The media center will have computers, audio equipment, and other technology which will allow students to develop multimedia projects benefiting their foreign language education and will give Albanian Audiolibra the ability to continue its work recording free books into Albanian.
