A group of youth; one is holding a robot
ProTIK’s “Young Innovators Club” is a program for Albania’s exceptionally gifted youth in the ICT field. They recently designed a robot (pictured). USAID is one of the partners that helped establish ProTIK to serve as a hub for ICT innovations in Albania.

Since 1992, USAID has delivered over $500 million in foreign aid to support Albania’s development, stability, and integration into Europe. Albania has played a positive, moderating role in the Balkans and is making strides toward Euro-Atlantic integration with its 2008 signing of a Stabilization and Association Agreement with the European Union (EU) and joining NATO in April 2009. However, significant challenges exist for Albania to become a socially- and economically-viable democracy.

USAID’s programs in Albania strengthen democratic institutions, promote civil society, reduce corruption, support equality and stimulate inclusive economic growth– all necessary to move Albania forward more quickly towards greater democracy while meeting criteria that are essential to achieving its European aspirations.
