The current situation in Albania, despite improvements, continues to show a significant difference in terms of participation of young people, women and marginalized communities in the social, economic and political life of the country. The root cause of this shortcoming varies from gender inequality to lack of capacity and programs of institutions to provide generations with accurate information on the decision-making process and civic democracy. In this situation, non-formal education initiatives represent additional opportunities to meet the needs of under-served communities, to promote civic engagement and participation in decision-making.
