Tungjatjeta, World Vision’s Social Program, gets the strategic support of Balfin Group in Albania

Balfin Group, the largest and most innovative group of investments in Albania and one of the largest in the region, joins the World Vision social program, “Tungjatjeta”, as one of the strategic partners of this program.
The leaders of Balfin Group expressed their readiness to cooperate and support the social program Tungjatjeta.

The World Vision International has in its foundation the child welfare through community development. All over the country, it turns out that 70,000 children between the ages of 2 and 17 are disabled, while 92% of them do not receive the basic services they need. Tungjatjeta is a social program dedicated to children with disabilities who live in the deepest areas of the country. Lack of infrastructure but also economic difficulties has made these children excluded from specialized services.

“Balfin Group is determined to promote the highest social values and show support for the community where it operates. We believe that the success of the Group is closely related to the well-being of Albanian citizens. We always appreciate and take care of social policies as well as the application of development projects anywhere in the Group network, and Tungjatjeta program works in this regard by providing specialized services for children with disabilities in places where these children live. Business growth must be accompanied by the development and the growth of the social community, and therefore we highly appreciate the Tungjatjeta program and we have joined it  as many other businesses in the country did.” – says Edlira Muka, CEO of Balfin Group, for this collaboration.

Tungjatjeta starts in Librazhd, where 470 children with disabilities are counted. Through this social program, the specialized team will travel towards deeper areas of Librazhd, where children will receive the necessary services in their apartments.(Personal Development Plan, Family Visit, Physiotherapy, Logopedia, Psychotherapy, Transport, Consultation, Development and Didactics kits)

Tungjatjeta is focused not only in the integration of children with disabilities, but also in the empowerment of children’s legal guardians and awareness of the community for the integration of these children.
