Mary Ward Loreto Foundation cordially invites you to participate in the launching of the Research on Migration of Albanians and the sharing of the results of this study.

Date: 26 April 2019;
Place: Tirana International Hotel, Balsha Room;
Time: 10:00 am. – 12:00 am.

During this conference we will share and discuss the causes and consequences of Albanian Migration. The results show a large tendency of Albanians to leave the country as a result of socio-economic factors. What makes this study unique is the use of comprehensive methodology and the first measurement of quality of life in Albania with the instrument of the World Health Organization.

This study aims to promote the recommendations for creating and modifying policies to prevent illegal migration, and to aid in the reintegration of returning migrants into society.

Your presence, shared thoughts and concrete findings regarding this issue are most welcome in the service of this great problem our country is facing.

Në këtë konferencë do të ndajmë me ju shkaqet dhe pasojat e Migrimit të Shqiptarëve. Rezultatet tregojnë një tendencë të madhe të Shqiptarëve për tu larguar si pasojë e faktorëve socio-ekonomik. Ajo çfarë e bën unik këtë studim, është përdorimi i metodologjisë gjithëpërfshirëse dhe matja për herë të parë e cilësisë së jetës në Shqipëri me instrumentin e Organizatës Botërore të Shëndetsisë.

International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking: On February 8, 2019, time 18:00, At St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tirana. “TOGETHER AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING”


On February 8, 2019 let’s turn on a light against the trafficking of persons, to celebrate the 5th edition of the International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking that this year will have as its theme: “TOGETHER against human trafficking”.

In the framework of the International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking, St. Bakhita’s Day, URAT Network with the support of the Archbishop of the Diocese of Tirana-Durres, is pleased to invite you to participate in the organized liturgy.

On February 8, 2019, time 18:00, At St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tirana.

The first edition of the IDPT was celebrated on February 8, 2015, by the will of Pope Francis, who in 2014 entrusted the International Union of Superiors and Superiors General (UISG / USG) with promoting this day. In these years, gathering in prayer has facilitated collaborating and overcoming the boundaries within which we operate, dedicated to our projects that, although very important, could lead us to cut ourselves off from the others. The great tragedy of trafficking urges us to overcome every barrier to join forces and collaborate for the common good.

On February 12th 2018, Pope Francis received a group of young people and representatives of the organizations sponsoring the International Day of Prayer. On this occasion he donated a very beautiful prayer that can be downloaded, into many different languages, from this Website. Urged by the questions of the young participants, Pope Francis recalled how important it is to tackle the root causes of trafficking and wished “that all of you can send a message to leaders at every level of governments, business and society, to demand access to quality education and, consequently, fair and sustainable employment.”

This requires us to coordinate our actions and unite our strengths. “Together against human trafficking” is the invitation addressed to everyone, each according to their own possibilities.

The announcement of the Launching of the Research: “Ethics in the Education System in Albania”, in the southern region of Albania. 27 October 2018.

Mary Ward Loreto Foundation and the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth are happy to announce the Launching of the Research: “Ethics in the Education System in Albania”, in the southern region of Albania.

Date: 27 October 2018

Place: Hotel Mustafa Event, in Vlora City,

Time: 10:00 – 13:00, (Registrations start at 9:30)

Young people have a right to be empowered with a social and moral awareness in order to thrive in our society. This means preparing young people to be citizens ready to influence the growing democracy. Such values are not only taught but need to be demonstrated by all actors in the life of a school.

The prevalence of unethical behaviour in schools has never been measured before in Albania. Mary Ward Loreto Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth, initiated a nationwide research in all levels of education, from preschool to Master’s level, in order to measure the severity and frequency of unethical behaviour. This research was conducted by a highly academic team of ACER led by Dr. Zef Preci, using a mixed methodology with a representative sampling for each level of education nationwide.

As an important actor in education in Albania, the voice in the Southern regions of Albania will add value and increase awareness of this situation. This voice of the South, spoken throughout this research, needs to be heard out loud and in public bringing to the table issues which are important in the education of young citizens in the Southern Regions of Albania.

Please contact us for more information about the research and about participating in this exciting event.
