Building Community Capacity for the Support of the Orphans’ Education: A Case of Albania

Abstract

This paper focuses on the exploration of strategies and policies on how to develop community capacity aiming at supporting the Albanian orphans’ education. The key objective is to propose a framework on how to develop the capacity of a community on dealing with the low academic performance of the institutionalized children (IC) and the lack of the provision and implementation of mentoring programs, strategies and policies based on research on community development. We conclude that the type of care (institutionalized vs foster) plays an important role in the child’s developmental and educational outcomes. Then, in the last section of this work, conclusions and recommendations are included.
