Who are we?
Albanian Animator Society started its activities in 1999. The founder of this group is Mr. Vladimir Dedndreaj and some former animators of the years 1998-1999. Albanian Animator Society makes its registration as a Society in Tirana District Court, on 17.11.2009 and this was after ten years of intensive experience.
Why the denomination "Albanian Animator Society"?
This group was thought to be primarily a group of friends, but all its members must have a qualification as animators. The Social Center "Don Bosco" since 1993 ", has qualified animators who lost their professional identity in a labor market, where this figure was not known at all. Thus was generated the need for a group of animators, whose main goal was the recognition, promotion and the protection of the professional image of the animators.
Albanian Animator Society, in its first steps was well received by many associations and institutions, but in particular from the Albanian Humanitarian Organization “Caritas”, which was and still is the most important collaborator. This cooperation has become even closer, since Albanian Animator Society is part of Caritas Albania, as "Caritas Volunteer Group".
Albanian Animator Society played an essential and unique role in promoting the professional image of the animator in 1999, also in the professional training of animators, who came out of the classrooms and performed the professional experience in our units such as:
- Albania's prisons
- Asylum for the elderly people
- Pediatric Hospital in Tirana
- Our friends with special skills
- Summer camps with children across the country
- Various activities with youth communities across Albania
- Emergency coordinated by Caritas Albania, (as incidents, floods, snow crashes, etc..)
From 1999 to 2013, there were involved 650 volunteer animators who have given their contribution from six to twenty-four months.
Albanian Animator Society continues to promote the image of Albanian animators by providing training courses in the entire country.
Nowadays Albanian Animator Society continues to promote the professional image of the animator, by organizing the work into the three following lines:
