A group of Czech Republic youth called "Albanian Challenge" have arrived this summer at the most remote areas of the Albanian Alps with the aim to help the community there. Despite the difficulties, they reached to build a bridge of about 15.5 meters long which passes over Narenth River and connects the villages of Theth and Grunas.

These voluntaries helped to reconstruct a church in these areas and organized a festival for the citizens. All this work was done in three weeks only and they worked without electric power, Wi-Fi, mobile phones or car.

“These areas, Theth and Valbona are very attractive, and Curraj is alike. We decided to help, to transform this village and turn them more attractive for the tourists. Here in Curraj it bureaucracy does not exist and people live with sources of natural products,” explained the Head of this initiative, Jan Balak.
