"Currently we have realized some projects where the most important is the creation of a Tourist Ring in the National Park "Bredhi i Hotovës-Dangëlli", and the realization of 4 Green Paths in the rural area of Përmet Municipality."
Objectives of the Project include preparation of the youth from Shengjergji as nature guide, by training them and enabling to become nature and tourist guide and future competitors in the work market. Improving touristic infrastructure in the area will give to the youth the opportunity to understand European policies and practices for the conservation of nature, to experience it and to offer nature guide service in complying eco standards.
