Since 2008 Caritas Austria and Caritas Albania have been implementing projects – financed by Austrian Development Agency and funds of other donors – which contribute to the fulfillment of People with Disability (PwD)’s rights in Albania. Besides the improvement of social services for PwD and promoting their participation in cultural life, caregivers were supported and the co-operation with local stakeholders was sought. The project “Being Active – Without Barriers” was prepared in 2014 and built on results and activities of previous projects like “Valuable life – Valuable live” and “Equal Opportunities for the PwD in Albania”.
