We live in a society with high levels of criminality that is the result of a lack of religious education and of the fact that religion is not taught in high school within the official educational system. That is why it is important to undertake personal initiatives to teach religious lessons. Thus, in June “ALSAR” Foundation organized and developed the project of summer religious courses. This activity aims at reviving traditional values, as well as educating the new generation of the Albanian society about the Islamic ethical, moral, and spiritual values.
 In organizational terms, it is worth mentioning that all the procedures of program planning have been undertaken all and the teaching process consists of three main stages:

• Program-planning based on special purposes, depending on the subject;
• Teaching intertwined with useful contemporary methods;
• Periodic assessment of students’ knowledge through exams prepared by the Educational Department of “ALSAR” Foundation.
In geographic terms, these courses are mainly run in the northern, central, and south-eastern areas of the country. 10 courses involving the participation of 500 students have taken place in three districts

The syllabus of this project aims at educating the new generation of the Albanian society, through teaching these subjects:
• Gaining knowledge on religion;
• Basic knowledge of Islamic religion;
• Learning how to read the Holy Quran in the Arabic language and memorizing its last 20 Surahs.

The students received the relevant textbooks free of charge in order to facilitate the teaching process of these subjects.



Having a 3-year experience, “ALSAR” Foundation has continued the provision of tailoring courses, which are of high demand in the labor market, in order to provide qualification opportunities and professional skills to the mothers of orphan children.

This professional skills program has been of great interest for 50 mothers who have benefitted from the theoretical and practical program focusing on cutting and sewing, but at the same time, they have been able to sustain their families by giving them different items, such as clothes tailored and designed by them.

The ceremony of displaying the very professionally sewn clothes by the skilled students of the tailoring course was held in an amicable atmosphere. The students have by now turned into skilled professionals ready to be integrated in the labor market. It was a successful conclusion of this activity on the occasion of the termination of this program.



The Turkish language teaching program for the students of this area has run regularly during the period January-May of this year, responding to their interest to extending the horizon of culture and knowledge in foreign languages. This has been considered as a great opportunity for all the interested children and students of this area, who through this project will be provided with opportunities and optimal education alternatives of contemporary and international standards to pursue their high school or university studies in Turkey.

The implementation of this project is yet another successful cooperation between “ALSAR” Foundation and the Municipality of Konispol. The course is provided for free and a professional teacher is assigned to work with this age group by employing contemporary methods blended with audio-visual programs, to make these courses more appealing and to facilitate the effective knowledge absorption. At the end of this program, the students of the two groups sat for a final exam, which assessed their knowledge, were awarded certificates.
