Too many families in need of social protection still face barriers accessing it. Discrimination against the most vulnerable children prevents many from receiving the benefits and services they are entitled to. Until now, social care services in Albania were limited and provided largely by non-state agencies. Existing social services are fragmented, rudimentary and ad-hoc in nature.
Public authorities took time to realize that providing these services in the most effective way possible is not a luxury, but an investment in a fundamental right.
