Transform their life - and a whole community

Great news! All of our registered children in Albania are currently being sponsored. 

There are many children in need of sponsorship around the world, just waiting for your support to transform their lives. Sponsor a child from a different country or find out more about the difference your sponsorship could make below.

Why sponsor a child in Albania

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children.

We work with children and their families in areas of Albania, where we prioritise education, disability access and child protection.

We help shield children from abuse, violence and exploitation.

By sponsoring a child in Albania, you can give a child in need power over their own future.

For £26 per month you can:

How your donations help

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child sponsored, 4 more children benefit, too. 

The impact of Child Sponsorship

The most important thing now is that my son is not aggressive anymore. He is more relaxed and communicates his needs better.


Lorenc's Mother

Sponsor a child like Lorenc and change their life today

Lorenc is 6 years old. He lives with his parents and his youngest sister.

The family is poor: his mother suffers from a thyroid condition and his father can only find temporary jobs.

When he was one, he was diagnosed with autism and the financial costs for supporting him were very high.

Through Child Sponsorship, Lorenc gets free therapy five times a week at a children's centre.

He has been going for eight months and his mother, Pranvera, says he has made great strides – and is more loving and affectionate towards his little sister, Anika, who he used to be aggressive towards.

Why World Vision

  • World Vision has had a Child Sponsorship programme for more than 70 years, we pair donors with a vulnerable child who needs protection and empowerment.

    Child Sponsorship brings much-needed change to more than just one child — the benefits you help provide extends to each child's family, their community and other children in need. 

    This is because World Vision partners, plans and works alongside local community members to help build healthy, sustainable communities for vulnerable children in the world’s hardest places. Learn more about how Child Sponsorship works. 

  • All of World Vision's work begins with listening to communities in need. Community leaders work with us to identify the most vulnerable children and families who will benefit from Child Sponsorship.

  • We work with national governments and other international agencies to identify the regions and communities that are most in need and where the most vulnerable children live. We then meet with community leaders and the wider community to gain a greater understanding of the challenges and the opportunities that exist for them and we develop a long-term plan together, to break the cycle of poverty.
