The ‘Civil Society programme for Albania and Kosovo’ is financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and managed by the Kosovar Civil Society Foundation (KCSF) in partnership with Partners Albania for Change and Development (PA), two BCSDN member organizations.
The overall goal of the programme is to support the democratic participation and development of a strong and vibrant civil society in Albania and Kosovo, by supporting NGOs that advance the EU accession process through contribution to one of the following five thematic areas:
- Non-discrimination and gender equality;
- Independent media;
- Minorities and marginalized groups;
- Environment protection;
The programme aims to achieve the following objectives:
- Increase the number of NGOs that contribute to five thematic areas of the programme;
- Increase the capacities of NGOs so their contribution to the five thematic areas and EU accession criteria is enhanced.
The call for proposals is now open. Deadline for submission of project proposals is November 5, 2018 at 24:00 hrs.
