Children/youth who grow up in poverty and neglect often don’t know their true value. You can let an Albanian youth know she is greatly valued by helping meet her needs and offering encouragement. Your donations and letters will communicate God’s love in a uniquely powerful way.
Your gift of $30 to $100 a month will go a long way in meeting the current needs of these youth, which include clothing, school expenses, vocational training and medical/health needs. Once there are enough sponsors for the youth, then they will each have a savings account that will accumulate funds for them to use as they transition into life outside of Eagle’s Wings.
Please read these short bios of youth currently in the Eagle’s Wings home. Then when you know which one you would like to sponsor, please fill out the form below and make your donation. If you have any questions, or want to get connected(to communicate) to one of the youth please contact us.
Anamarie(15) has been raised in the House of Hope in Shen Vlashaj close to Durres city.
Her mother is a homeless women and with mental problems as well.
Sine Anamarie was a baby of one year old her mother did use her for bagging and exposing and so, exposin her to any potential danger . In that situation the Orthodox orphanage provided took her from her vulnerable mother and provided a shelter since she completed the elementary school .
One year ago after she finished the school, the House of Hope shelter asked for social services’ help to find a suitable place to stay for Anamarie. Social service referred her to our home.
We could not take her at June 2018 because we had no free place for her and only after Teresa left for independent living we took her in Eagle’s Wings home(in autumn).
She started the high school and is trying to achieve better grades in school.
Sophie has just turned 18 and has completed the second year of the economic high school (equivalent of 11th grade in the USA). Coming from an impoverished and dysfunctional family, she was born out of wedlock and abandoned by her father, and so her mother sent her to the state run orphanage of the Saranda at a young age. During the 12 years she lived there, she had telephone contact and occasional visits with her mother, who spent several years in prison. Sophie has experienced much disappointment from her mother, as she made promises to take her home but never followed through; also, Sophie not accept her mother’s lifestyle.
Sophie is a loving and sensitive girl who wants to continue to study in school in order to break the chain of poverty and ignorance in her life. She is a girl full of life yet very fragile, and Eagle’s Wings is glad to work with her to support and equip her with the necessary skills for a successful life.
Nadia is 17 years old and has been living in a state run orphanage in Tirana for 13 years, where her sister and her older brother also grew up. Her alcoholic father and neglecting mom divorced, and she has had limited contact with them. She faced a crossroads, and her options to live a normal life were extremely limited. It was time for her to leave the orphanage, for they could not help her anymore; her mother has been homeless and often unemployed, so living with her was not an option. When the director of her orphanage told her about our home, she had hope for a better option and wanted to know more. After some meetings and after visiting our home, she decided to come to Eagle’s Wings. She has just finished her second year of high school (equivalent of 11th grade in the USA), and her greatest desire is to graduate and be prepared to live in an independent life after she turns 18 or older.
Six years ago, Nadia’s older sister lived in our first group home for a year, and she recommended her to our organization as an excellent opportunity to integrate into independent life. We are so glad that Nadia has joined our Eagle’s Wings family!
