The aim of this article is to collect available information on NGOs in Albania and their requirements for educated and trained employees and volunteers with specific skills and capabilities that are in line with the investors’ requirements concerning application, implementation, and reporting systems. Since 1991 with the process of democratization and under the motto ''To make Albania like Europe'' the first NGO started to flourish (Jorgoni, 2013) in the fresh post-communist Albania. Mainly the NGOs started their activity in Albania as branches or daughter organizations of the mother NGOs from European and USA countries. The mother NGOs shared experience and funds with but the Albanian reality and infrastructure was not prepared to digest and implement the information and knowledge offered. Albanian NGOs were the first institutions in Albania that smelled freedom and Europe. Being member of any NGO had a strong conceptual and emotional meaning as if being member of the big real world outside the cold communist epoch. The communist curtains (Churchill 1946) for 45 years destroyed private propriety and legal institutions together with the perception of the individuals for free life and the big world. Aiming shrinking of people’s mind to fit the parameters of a communist red block full of black names and fake facts; generating the New Man only if the very nature of man can be changed to conform to the requirements of the new communist order (Alt and Alt 1964). Nowadays Albanian society shares social problems (drug, human rights etc.) with Western Europe; political problems with Asian and East Europe; and environmental problems with Central Europe and rest of the world.
