The Republic of Albania is in the Balkans, SE Europe. It spans 28,748 sq km (11,100 sq miles) and had a total population of 3 million people as of 2016. Albania's capital is Tirana, the country's most populous city and main economic and commercial centre. Its other major cities include Durrës, Vlorë, Sarandë, Shkodër, Berat, Korçë, Gjirokastër and Fier. Following the collapse of communism in 1990, Albania went through a process of transition from a centralized economy to a market-based economy. The Republic provides universal health care and free primary and secondary education to its citizens.
Albania's population is currently around 2.88 million comprising 17 people groups, five of which are believed to be unreached. Although less than 0.5% are evangelical Christians, the annual growth rate is estimated at nearly 5%.

WEC is currently working in three locations - in the capital Tirana, a town called Bathore (just north of Tirana), and the northern city of Shkodra. Each team has a centre for outreach and is involved in church planting as well as community projects.
The team in Shkodra is running a free medical service and children's programs as well as looking for more ways to reach their community. In Tirana, the team has a ministry centre and is exploring their options in reaching out to more parts of the neighbouring community.
The WEC team is prayerfully planning and anticipating reaching out to at least two more new locations in Albania. This includes church planting and discipling in more unreached districts in the capital city Tirana, Bathore, Shkodra and new towns we've never reached.
