In the Youth Center “Perspektiva” we believe that the change in the community starts with the change in yourself. In many cases it takes only one person to start the change – and soon you will see more and more people joining the good cause. One of our objectives is to develop the sense of ownership among different community actors in Albania by bringing together those, who want to be a part of the Change. There are so many fields, where joint community action helps to improve the situation, raises awarenessamong the locals and becomes a vivid example that good changes start from the small steps.
We follow events in Albania and respond to them by community activities in partnership with other civil society organizations and volunteers. Social life, ecology, natural emergencies – we know, that together we can do so much and we invite you to be a part of this Change!

In Albania these days many organizations got involved in the gathering of the humanitarian aid – and it was amazing for us to see how much people can achieve, when they are united by a good idea…
