Our funders and donors are great partners to our work and play a strategic role in enabling Shpresa to make a great impact.

We could not have done anything without the generous support of our funders. We are keenly aware that on many occasions our funders have done much more than the funding arrangements have required to ensure our work is supported to achieving outcomes that have made a real difference to the lives of our community.

We are also indebted to many agencies and services for the success of our work. What has helped us has been a commitment to developing effective partnerships to maximise our resources. We have learned the advantages of being outward looking and we have been fortunate in the organisations and individuals that we have worked with.

We would like to express our appreciation. Thank you for trusting us and believing in us. Thank your partnership and support.

‘I am proud and privileged to be a Friend and Supporter of the great work that Shpresa does for the Albanian community living in the UK and also for the their neighbours and friends. TELCO and Shpresa have matured together over the last several years, developing leaders, teaching our young people about civic life and tackling social injustices together. We have learned that we are so much better and more powerful together. … Your ability to fight for the community, sustain and celebrate the traditions and identity of your members – and to raise the resources that are so needed to make the organisation work and be so effective. Long may you survive and prosper. Congratulations on all you do.’
