Help us teach English to hundreds of Afghans refugees in Albania

Short term
Lezhë, Albania

Less than one month, 1-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months

The horrific crisis in Afghanistan is leading to a mass exodus of refugees from this war-torn country. Now, more than ever, there is an urgency for the Church to step up and get involved. Will you join us?

The Envoy Foundation has a unique opportunity to provide English lessons and other activities for the Afghan refugees in Albania. The Albanian government is welcoming refugees from Afgahnistan, and are committed to receiving 4000 who are welcome to stay at least 18month or, if they'd like to, permanently. As opportunities arise we’re keen to offer more to meet the spiritual, material, medical, administrative and psychological needs and to share with them the love of Jesus who meets them in their need. Help us serve hundreds of Afghans refugees staying in Shengjin, Lezhe, Albania.
