Empowering financially disabled people

17 August 2022,

Our EU Project Manager, Fjordi Bisha and Project Coordinator, Valbona Dedja, paid a monitoring visit to the Tirana Ekspres.

Tirana Ekspres implemented during the summer a very successful project dealing with people with disabilities.

Thanks to them, participants from all over the region were taught new artisanal skills by a carefully selected team of handicraftsmen and other teachers.

As a result, many of the disabled participants can now provide for themselves and their families by creating and selling artisanal souvenirs, pendants, bracelets, and many other items.

Tirana Ekspres project is one of the 30 supported financially by the 4th Call for Proposals, co-funded by the European Union, IPA – Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance.
