Salina has clear ideas, she knows what her dream is: to become a veterinarian. To realize it, he is not afraid to challenge the stereotypes that still mark the Albanian society and can count on a school that, starting from the concreteness of the earth, aims straight for the future.
Salina - one of the 200 students of the "Ndre Mjed" high school in Bushat, the only higher agricultural technical institute in Northern Albania - is the protagonist of the report "Il sogno di Salina", created by the Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso in collaboration with the program "Alliance for the development and enhancement of family agriculture in northern Albania", which has as its objective the eco-sustainable development of one of the most backward areas of Albania.
"When I told my father that I wanted to be a veterinarian, because I love animals and because I dream of doing the job I love, he was very happy. In fact, I think it was his secret desire.”- Salina confesses at the beginning of the report.
In his decision to move "from the city to the countryside", Salina was not afraid to challenge the stereotypes that still characterize the Albanian society as told on OBC microphones:
"Whenever I told my friends, "I'm going to move from our school to town to go to a country school to study," they asked me if I was crazy. But for me it's not a problem at all, because I really like the people I found here, I like school, I like the energy we breathe here. ”- continues Salina.
From his point of view it doesn't matter if a school is in the country or in the city, what really matters is the passion you put into what you're studying:
"I believe that the best school in the world is ourselves. If you lack passion and love for what you are learning, you will never get results. If instead you have the curiosity to learn, asking yourself continuously what this is, what is that, you will surely succeed in realizing yourself as a person. ”- adds Salina
The future is still uncertain but Salina knows one thing for sure, or wanting to become a veterinarian:
"Maybe I will have a clinic of my own, maybe I'll work abroad ... I wonder what life will hold for me. I am open to all possibilities. But one thing I know for sure is that I want to be a veterinarian and realize this dream.
This is why I try to improve myself every day, in fact my favorite motto is: if you are the 1% better than yesterday, you are a successful person. ”- concludes Salina.

Attention to the fate of entire families, attention to the development of local communities, attention to the landscape, attention to issues of economic development. In short, these are the key elements that theAlliance for the development and enhancement of family agriculture in northern Albania proposes to set in motion, starting from traditional knowledge, typical products and the role of women.
4 July 2017 launched from the city of Pukë, this three-year project is promoted by two Italian NGOs - Reggio Terzo Mondo (RTM) and emerging countries Development Cooperation (COSPE) - with the support of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS). The objective of the initiative may sound "traditional" - the eco-sustainable development of one of the most backward areas of Albania - but the network and the method they propose to implement it are innovative. Agropuka, given its role in the region, participates in the initiative as a permanent member of the Management Committee of the Endowment Fund for the Development of Family Farming, a project-based financing scheme.
