Project Scope
In 1999, the Erseka Evangelical Church began to care for refugees who streamed in from Kosovo. 600,000 refugees flooded into Albania. The churches began to respond. The Erseka Church formed a partnership with Schloss Klaus, a Torchbearers Center in Austria to aid the refugees. The Erseka believers worked side by side with their Austrian brothers and sisters in aiding those devastated by war especially widows.

In 2001, Torchbearers-Albania began through the prayers, wisdom and help of other Torchbearers Centers. The Albania Center main building was purchased during the Kosovo war. Torchbearers began summer camps in 2000. These have grown steadily. Each summer over 1000 Albanian campers come to Udhkryq.

The desire of Torchbearers is to take the newly acquired building and land and develop it into a thriving camp. The new land and building will double the size of operations. A well thought out plan is needed for the best use of the new space. There is also a building that will be renovated for better use by the campers. This may include the addition of another floor to the building. Would you be willing to serve on a project like this?
