Mjaft!, is a comprehensive movement encompassing a diversified program that places civil society and all is components at the epicenter of its work. The vision of the MJAFTMovement is to achieve a well-governed Albania with active citizens, strong communities and a positive image in the world

Initially MJAFT (ENOUGH) was envisioned to be precisely that one-word colloquial response as the center of a four-month (mid March - mid July 2003) public Campaign reaching out to over 2,5 – 3 million Albanians in the country and abroad. The MJAFT Campaign turned out to be the largest and most successful awareness-raising and advocacy campaign ever held in Albania.

In the months following the conclusion of the MJAFT Campaign, Balkans YouthLink Albania (BYL-A), the Albanian National Debate Association (ANDA) and many other groups and individuals who joined the campaign, recognized the acute need for the continuation of MJAFT’s work – this time not only as a mere PR Campaign, but moreover as an established Movement that constantly presses for civic activism, national development and Albania’s image abroad. Currently MJAFT is Albania’s largest Movement, with over 7 000 members, more than 1000 volunteers, Civic Clubs in the cities of Berat, Durres, Kukes, Fier, Lezha, Lushnje, Permet, Peshkopia, Pogradec, Puka, Rreshen, and Sarande, as well as Student Clubs in the six university towns of Elbasan, Gjirokaster, Korce, Shkoder, Tirana, and Vlore. MJAFT Clubs are an initiative that successfully expanded the MJAFT Movement experience to the local level by creating citizen groups in respective towns to advocate and lobby for issues relevant to the community.

The MJAFT Movement believes that a good democracy, proper governance and a prosperous society can be built only if constructive civic demand and participation is achieved. Thus, its mission is to increase active citizenship, strengthen the sense of community, promote responsible governance and improve the image of Albania in the world through: (i) encouraging participation of citizens in decision-making by influencing and monitoring policies at both local and national level; (ii) promoting volunteerism, and improve cooperation within communities; (iii) rehabilitating the sense of protest.
