Slovene Philanthropy began its international work soon after its establishment, as a response to what was happening in the area of former Yugoslavia in the 90s. Soon we began transferring our experience from the Balkans to other areas stricken by war or other maladies, like North East Europe, North Caucasus, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and others.
All Slovene Philanthropy’s programmes are aimed at mobilisation and enhancement local human resources, especially those who work with the most vulnerable groups and those in need. The users of these programmes are mostly representatives of civil society (NGOs), mental health experts, school workers and other relevant agents that offer assistance to children, the elderly, women and other groups.
- Psychosocial trainings;
- The development and promotion of volunteering;
- Trainings in the field of human rights and education for active citizenship;
- Raising awareness and advocacy for the rights of vulnerable groups;
- Economic empowerment for underprivileged groups;
- Global Education..
Our programmes’ main characteristic is that we always work closely with local partners, take into account the local context, their needs and capabilities and that they are aimed at sustainability.
