Assessment for increasing governmental subsidies

SOS Children’s Villages Albania (SOS CV AL), was established in 1995, it has been active in the field of social protection through provision of direct care services for children and young people without parental care, as well community based services for families at risk. The mission of our work is to ensure that every child grows with love, security and respect.
SOS CV AL operates in Albania with 2 main programs:
1. Family Based Care (FBC) offering care for 117 children and young people. Uniquely, we provide long-term, family-like care for children who have lost parental care. The FBC programme units are usually organized in the form of a cluster of SOS families, where a SOS caregiver cares for small groups of children.
2. Family Strengthening Program (FSP) supporting 763 children/young people and 285 families. We work with vulnerable families and communities to help strengthen them and prevent child abandonment. Through our family strengthening activities, SOS CV AL helps families look after themselves by providing material support, childcare, education, counselling - whatever is needed so that families can become self-reliant and stay together. Only in this way can we ensure that children are not abandoned and that they can grow up with dignity and security in their own families.
Since 2009 these programs are supported by Advocacy Campaigns for Child Rights. At SOS CV AL, advocacy is taking action to improve policies and practices that undermine the well-being of children and young people at risk of losing parental care or who have lost parental care.

This assessment will contribute to SOS CV AL by providing feasible information concerning the country’ status on social services and in particular those related to children that have lost parental care or at risk of losing it. Our maximum goal is to increase the share of Governmental subsidies in the total amount of SOS CV AL local income by creating a strategy using this assessment as one of the core tools. The strategy aim is to empower organization in establishment of cooperation and partnership with Governments in order to increase level of government subsidies and improve the lives of children and families.
