Our work in Albania

By keeping children with families and out of orphanages, we’re committed to strengthening families in Albania. And when we sustain families, they build stronger communities.

Protecting children and families

Families facing socio-economic challenges are often forced to place their children in institutions, even though they’d much prefer to raise their children in their own home.

Family is essential

Decades of research emphasize that family is essential to a child’s physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being. That’s why our first priority in Albania is keeping children stable and safe with their family of origin. When that’s not possible, we find local foster families who can provide a loving home.

Your gift strengthens families.

Help support Bethany’s work in Albania

For families in poor economic backgrounds, meeting basic needs like nutritious meals, safe shelter, quality health care, and education can seem impossible. With your gift, we can change that—because children need families.
