Challenge

More than 700 children in Albania are currently deprived of a family environment and living in institutional care, which affects their emotional, intellectual and physical development and significantly affects their chances of developing at their full potential.

Solution

UNICEF is committed to end unnecessary placement of children in institutional care and ensure the right of every child to live in a family environment. Preventing separation of families and supporting families in difficult situations are our priorities
