Full Time

In Durres, OM Albania is working with one of the state-run centers for handicapped children, members of the church regularly take the children from the center out on walks. This doesn't only change up the routine for the children who have little distraction, but it also fights against the cultural stigma of Albania, that disabled children should be kept a secret.

OM Albania regularly holds meetings with handicapped children and their families at a local church, to teach the children about Jesus. This concept also brings together the families of the children, as they often struggle with poverty and discrimination.

We don't only work with the children themselves, trying to teach them how to count or write, but we also aim to help the family of the child. Many times the family lives in poverty, and the siblings feel left out as they don't get the same attention. OM Albania tries to provide the siblings with monthly meetings so that they can go out and have fun, but also helps the siblings with homework.

You will need:
– A willingness to learn Albanian
– Flexibility
– Humility and patience
– A love for people
– A heart for children

This is not a paid position, financial support will need to be raised for life on the field.

Live opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.
