An OriginAL Journey
October 27, 2022
OriginAL’s mission is to give every young Albanian in the Diaspora the opportunity to explore their homeland and their family roots.
OriginAL aims to provide a volunteer, educational, and cultural experience for Albanian Diaspora Youth (ages of 18-24) in their homeland countries. The goal is to strengthen their sense of ethnic identity and create long-lasting connections, especially between them and their youth peers in our homeland countries. OriginAL is patterned on the idea of Birthright Israel, and similar programs in other countries, We launched OriginAL with 40 participants in 2022, and want to double this number every year for the next five years and then reach thousands in the future.
