My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Adventures in Preservation, Boulder, CO, USA
It has been my privilege to be a part of one of Adventures in Preservations interesting projects in Albania and to work along side AiP’s dedicated volunteers.
Gjirokastra in Albania is a remarkable city, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
AiP has worked in Gjirokastra since 2008, holding short term hands-on preservation workshops using international volunteers to assist in documenting and restoring Ottoman-era architecture. In 2011, AiP furthermore took the lead in a hands-on training project to repair and restore one of Gjirokastra’s most outstanding traditional tower houses, the Skenduli House.
I have attended several times and it has been a very rewarding experience, both professional, but also creating friendships for life.
