Since 2014 the Albanian Bar Association has been undertaking the AABA Albanian School & Orphanage Supplies Project to keep true to its long held goal of promoting education and helping our fellow Albanians and Albanian Americans around the world. The AABA believes that each and every child deserves to have access to the school supplies needed to learn and is committed to improving educational outcomes for poor children. Many school children in Albania receive an inadequate education because of a lack of basic teaching tools such as pens, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, calculators, notebooks and textbooks. In the poorest schools, school supplies are considered a luxury and many students go without. The goal of the AABA Albanian School and Orphanage Supplies Project is to address educational inequalities in small villages and towns in Albania, one school at a time. AABA will be providing supplies at no charge to schools and orphanages that are most in need of assistance because they serve the highest proportion of children with inadequate supplies.
This Project Is In Memory Of Arthur Chako (1925-2013)
The driving force behind this project stems from the eternal inspiration that the late Arthur Chako, a Permëtar and AABA member, bestowed upon all those who met him. His deep appreciation and emphasis on the importance of education and on the simple joys of helping one another, especially fellow Albanians, resonates throughout the missions of the AABA today. I perjetshem qofte kujtimi i tij.
