Malteser Albania members participated in a two-week workshop "Bio construction and community service" within project: "Spreading community life model: good practices exchange in the field of community life and housing for social excluded people” which was held in the period of June 20 until 3 July 2018 in Siera Evira, Granada, Spain.
The host organization was the Lead partner Fundacion Escuela de Solidaridad, an organization that provides protection and necessary assistance to socially excluded and marginalized, primarily mothers with children, immigrants and adolescent.
The purpose of the workshop was to get familiarized with "Bio-construction" and the construction of the facility.
