As Albania emerges from the legacy of communist rule, free access to information through the printed word is still lacking. Since 2011, Mercy-USA has been assisting schools in Albania to open or expand libraries.
During the 2014-15 school year, a total of 12 elementary, middle and high schools were provided with over 4,600 new books (over 50 different titles). About 3,300 children attending these schools have access to important reference material, novels, poems and short stories to broaden their horizons and encourage them to “Read to Succeed!” Since program inception, over 13,000 children attending more than 40 schools have received about 15,600 new books to read and expand their horizons.
Your charitable gift can open the world through books for these children.
Your generous charitable gift supports Mercy-USA’s work in Albania.
