Founded in 1992, Open Society Foundation for Albania (OSFA) – Soros – has now entered a new phase in its development. The evolution of the new Albanian democracy prompted the Foundation to rethink its role in the life of the Albanian society and its institutions. Faithful to its mission of creating and consolidating an open society in Albania, OSFA worked out a new plan of action to contribute to the democratization and further integration of the country with the EU.

In the present stage, OSFA has committed itself to playing an important role. It operates on a number of planes and cooperates continuously with other organizations locally as well as with entities from the public, the private and the civil society sector.

OSFA also interacts with the Network of Open Society for Albania (NOSA) representing the membership of eight non profit organizations and provides a part of the funding for their activity. OSFA is at the same time the sole channel of communication for NOSA with the Open Society Institute (OSI) in New York.
