The first week of training of volunteers from the National Civil Service abroad, who are preparing to leave for Tirana with the GUS Human Solidarity Group, ended with prestigious institutional visits, a sign of attention for the Italian NGO, for over twenty years engaged in welcoming and international cooperation, and which in Albania has been carrying out international partnership projects for years.
Today in the Rome branch of the GUS, in via Aureliana, Chiara, Marco, Marcelino and Boiken, together with the National Training, Participation and National Civil Service Manager of the NGO Andrea Pignataro, welcomed the Head of the Youth Department and the National Civil Service of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers Calogero Mauceri and the manager Titti Postiglione.
"I came to bring the greetings of the institutions to these young people, reminding them that in the service abroad they represent our country, as if they were real ambassadors," said Councilor Mauceri, who together with Dr. Postiglione brought as a gift to the kids hats and other SCN gadgets.
The boys had already visited the representative in Italy of the Albanian Ministry of Culture which he emphasized "The importance of training in the development of cultural activities in Albania, training whose projects such as this certainly give new impetus and added value".

For Giovanni Lattanzi, national coordinator of the GUS, "Albania represents a strategic axis of the GUS commitment abroad, both in cooperation and in the defense of human rights, starting from the spread of good practices in participation, active citizenship and non-formal education. For this reason we wanted to dedicate to this reality an SCN project open to the requests and contributions of Albanian civil society: to strengthen the bond that unites the two countries and perhaps through this experience continue to promote in Albania this tool".
The young volunteers will be engaged in the Albanian capital in the project "Young for Albania", which aims to stimulate mutual understanding between the different Albanian national groups and intends to generate a climate of solidarity, respect for cultures and appreciation of differences, through intercultural paths that favor the participation of young people in the cultural life of the city.
