The Hope Fellowships Program
Through the Hope Fellowship Program, the National Albanian American Council’s goals are to: Strengthen institutional partnerships with civil society by increasing public participation in governmental processes. Strengthen in-country human capital, increase inter-ethnic cooperation, and increase regional stability and cross-border cooperation by sharing best practices on leadership, advocacy, youth, anti-corruption, and management and communications issues. Both program goals will contribute towards the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Strategic Objectives in the Balkans and, in particular, will feed those SOs related to developing democratic institutions, increasing the involvement of citizens in political, economic and social decision-making, and developing effective partnerships between government and civil society.
