Since January 2009, Mercy-USA for Aid and Development has been providing three-month computer office software and English language training courses to orphans in Albania.
In addition to the technical training these orphans receive, they are mentored by caring Mercy-USA staff members who teach essential life skills that will serve the students as they enter adulthood. Mercy-USA mentors provide character development training that nurtures the whole child and teaches the values of honesty, hard work, and integrity. This character training encourages the at-risk youth to avoid criminal responses to hardship, and gives them confidence to join the workplace after their schooling is complete. The trainees are also provided with a nutritious meal or snack during each class. This project is being done in cooperation with local orphanages.
As of December 31, 2014, approximately 840 orphaned Albanians have enrolled in and have completed these courses.
