Visit to Albania

Colin will be in Tirana, capital of Albania, later this month

He will be visiting as a guest of the Down Syndrome Albania Foundation and Services Centre. He will be training parents and teachers of children with Down syndrome on how to use our Special Words and Special Stories apps.

This has been made possible with the help of Vodafone Albania, whose support includes donating 40 Samsung tablets to the Centre, as well as additional funding from the Vodafone Foundation. Back in December 2013, Bev and Colin, the founders of Special iApps, received a Mobile for Good Award from the Vodafone Foundation.

To coincide with Colin's visit, we have updated Special Words and Special Stories, for Android and iOS, with full support for Albanian (shqip), which is the official language of Albania and Kosovo, and spoken by a significant number of people in surrounding countries.
