Public Annual Report for 2015

An important spill-off of the Observatory’s strong presence on the ground has been their ability to advocate with government authorities for enhanced local measures to address the needs of children and families, especially from vulnerable backgrounds.

The Observatory assembles and analyses local and regional data, to aid the decisions of local, regional and national government institutions. In our view, the Observatory has made significantly contribution to creating evidence for improved policy making for the benefit of children. This has been made possible by the professionalism and diligence of its staff, including the excellent relationship that Observatory staff enjoys with the government counterparts within the regions and districts – Mr. Detlef Palm, UNICEF Representative in Albania (2009-2014) (January 2014)

I have known the Observatory for the Children’s Rights from the work it has done on Korça region since 2009, as a local actor and an independent civil society mechanism, which has managed to consolidate cooperation with local institutions networks, coordinate the initiatives between stakeholders and identify needs and problems in the field, by lobbing and advocating with all the stakeholders to fulfill and guarantee the rights of children in need – Mr. Niko Peleshi, Deputy Prime Minister, Albania (January 2014)

I believe that the Observatory for the Children’s Rights with a 5 years’ experience in the sector of civil society, is a potential candidate capable of representing and treat with professionalism the issues of children’s rights in the country – Mrs. Klajda Gjosha, Minister of European Integration, Albania (January 2014)
