About

In the heart of the Mediterranean, on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Albania, the land of eagles, still relatively unspoiled by globalization, offers an inspiring mixture of civilizations and cultures. Albanian history and culture is fascinating. Butrint, one of the world's archeological wonders - and a Unesco World Heritage site - in the south of Albania provides a glimpse of Mediterranean civilization from the Bronze Age through the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman periods. This ancient country still offers something increasingly rare in Europe, a glance into a culture that is all its own. Raised on a diet of separation and hardship, Albania is distinctly Albanian.

Orientation in Tirana:

The group participants will be welcomed at the airport by a representative of Experiment Albania. A three days orientation will be provided upon arrival in Tirana. This program orientation will cover basic information about customs, values and daily life in Albania.

Yes, I recommend this program

You should do it

I had a great time overall at Rromani Baxt. Most volunteers arrive later in the summer, so there was only one other volunteer at the time. We shared the volunteer room and got along really well. In the mornings we were working in the kindergarten, helping to maintain order, teach basic English words, and play games with the adorable kids. In the afternoon we hung out with the older kids. The english level is generally very low, but somehow you find a way to communicate without too many mixups. On weekends we explored Tirana or visited nearby cities. There is enough to do outside of volunteering to really stay occupied. The family that runs the centre is lovely, and you will make friends in the neighbourhood. Overall a great experience, and I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in volunteering or learning more about the Roma community.
