Launching “Financially viable civil society = Active civil society” project
The project “Financially viable civil society = Active civil society” is Partners Albania newest initiative, implemented in framework of Civil Society Watchdog and Advocacy Program supported by the Public Affairs Office of the United States Embassy in Tirana. This initiative aims to contribute to the financial sustainability of the civil society organizations engaged in strengthening of democracy, rule of law and good governance in Albania, respect for human rights, increase of citizen activism and community development.
The project is helping strengthen the capacity of NGOs to identify new business models in order to generate revenues, thus providing financial stability independent from the usual donor funding, for a greater impact in the communities where they operate.
On December 9th, the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy in Tirana in cooperation with Partners Albania and Co-plan launched the Civil Society Watchdog and Advocacy Program, an event which brought together over eighty civil society representatives and activists. The Civil Society Watchdog and Advocacy Program aims to strengthen the capacity of local civil society organizations to hold government accountable and advocate on key priorities.
