Programs

Funding is sought for a job skills training program in Gjirokaster, Albania. In partnership with Cultural Heritage without Borders, AiP will teach local residents and international volunteers the preservation skills necessary to restore the Skenduli tower house, an Ottoman-era structure whose survival is vital to the Albanians' cultural identity and economy, as it is a heritage tourism asset. The Albanian government has named restoration of such sites a priority but needs skills training.
