About the projects of the Outdoor Albania association:
Vuno is a small and very beautiful village of the Albanian Rivera. It is located between Dhermi and Himare. It has around 200 houses made of cobble stone, narrow streets and beautiful surroundings of olive trees. However, very few families (mostly elderly people) live there year round. The only school in Vuno was destroyed. We have brought volunteers to clean this school from garbage and to rebuild it again. Today it is a functioning school that turns into a hostel for the summer. This project has also become an inspiration for the neighboring village of Dhermi.
Inhabitants of Dhermi have asked us to repeat the project with their school. With help of the Swiss University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil we are going to implement this project on a bigger scale of development. It will go internationally attracting volunteers from the neighboring countries of Kosovo and Montenegro. Several workshops will be organized to teach young people on how to work with the cobble stone and repair the buildings. Our team is constantly looking for new ideas and people to help Albanian communities.
