U.S Embassy Donates Scholastic Books to “Zenel Bastari” School

On June 11, representatives of the U.S. Embassy in Tirana traveled to Zall-Bastar, a village in a remote area outside Tirana. USAID traveled to Zall-Bastar to distribute “Alpine” goats to 20 women in the Zall-Bastar Commune as part of a USAID Albania project to empower local women. The Public Affairs Office, through its Information Resource Center, brought a collection of Scholastic Books, International Information Program (IIP) Publications and Trace Effects English language learning video games to donate to “Zenel Bastari” Elementary School. The students and the teachers were very grateful for the donation of the materials and thanked the Ambassador and embassy staff for the gifts, which will not only start the creation of a school library but will also be used during the summer months for summer reading.
