Hello! My name is Albio Topalli. I am 16 years old and my birthday is on March 21st. I am doing well and in good health. My favorite color is green and my future dream is to become an engineer. I started to frequent the second grade at school and enjoy learning. My favorite subject at school is Math. When we finish school for the day, I usually get together with my friends and we play soccer in the sport field of the school. We also play in the road for a few hours. I spend a while outside the house helping my family in agriculture. I help them with all that I can offer and do things that they ask of me to do. During the weekends, we have a market day in our village and I like to go there and see the people who come to buy staff. Many people from different village come to Proptisht during the market day and it gets crowdy. Activities for youths are missing in the village and we are happy to join the activities of LW/Adopt a Child church
My family and I live in Proptisht. My village is a community center of many other villages that are around and it contains offices that offer different services. We have also got a clinic and a high school besides the elementary school. My house offers appropriated living conditions. I have five persons containing my family, they are my father, mother, my brother, sister and me. My brother is 11 years old and attends the 6th grade at school. My sister is 3 years old and frequents kinder garden for the first part of the day. My father works at electric company so he has a monthly pay, we are happy that he has a job in order to provide for the family. My mother stays at home and she takes care for my sister. My father managed to buy a used car so that we can move around when ever we need to. My family owns land in the village and my parents deal with agriculture. My mother usually plants vegetables in the garden and we enjoy fresh products as potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, onions, beans, etc. She collects the products from the garden that we have not consumed and preserves them in cans so that we can consume these products during winter. My father helps her with the gardening. Around our land and garden, we have also got fruit trees as apples, plums, grapes, etc. My mother is collecting these fruits and she makes for us jam or juice for consumption. My parents are not dealing with livestock. Cows or sheep are beneficial, but they consume very much food and it takes lots of effort to care for them. My brother and I are both registered in the program and benefit special care from Adopt a Child. Thank you for your generous support to us and God bless you!
The LW/Adopt a Child church in Proptisht meets for the weekly service on Monday. During the other days of the week, the church has Bible classes for small children as well as Bible studies in small groups for ladies and men. The children who are registered in the sponsorship programme of Adopt a Child are constantly every six weeks receiving a food package containing pasta, rice, oil, sugar, etc. This package has been a blessing to each child and family in the village. Thank you for your care and support, sponsoring a Child in Albania.
