Albania - Albania SDA Mission

 

Mission
To show the love of God to kindergarteners by teaching them English and spending time with them.

Description
Kopshti Adventist is a kindergarten found in the outskirts of the main square in Tirana, Albania. It is a kindergarten that welcomes kids 2 to 6 years old. Missionaries that come here will teach 3 different classes of English. They will also help with taking care of the kids. This includes: feeding them, getting them ready for bedtime, playing with them and helping around the school in any way they need. This kindergarten is great for those who want to work with little kids and are willing to learn how to be self-dependent.

  • Timeline: Full year. Missionaries will come in August which is their only vacation time and will work until August of the next year. They are provided with some holidays but will have to request time off if they want it.

From the main square it just takes about 20 minutes or less of walking to arrive in any place that you want. This includes theaters, museums, coffee shops and attractions. The best part of this area is that the locals are used to having foreigners, so if you are not exactly sure what to do, you can always just start talking to a local and you just made a new friend.
