Tirana Mayor Erion Veliaj labeled the youths' education as the best way to address the poverty issue. He made this declaration during an activity organized on Tuesday in "Ardian Klosi' school in the framework of the International Day against Poverty while emphasizing the numerous initiatives undertaken by the municipality to provide assistance to the people in need.
'A series of initiatives to provide assistance to those in need have been taken by the Tirana Municipality. Numerous social soup-kitchens and professional education courses have been opened all over Tirana as part of our continuous fight against poverty. However, we should all focus even more on the people's education. It is better to teach someone how to catch a fish than to serve him a fish on the plate," said Veliaj.
The mayor also declared that youths' support will continue through scholarships and professional education courses enabling a better future for those more in need.
