Project: Recovery through Solidarity: Citizens Take the Lead


Description: The main logic behind the project is to support CSOs in Montenegro to become more professional, independent, reliable and effective regarding their missions, more accountable and responsive to the needs of their beneficiaries and target groups. In order to help CSO grow in the manner described above, we would like to provide sub-grants and specific capacity building (trainings, mentorship and organizational development assessments), while at the same time promoting the work and professionalism of CSOs to citizens and developing policy recommendations that allow creation of enabling environment that favors accountable and well self-regulated organizations. Expected results are: • 3-4 grants provided for youth and social services projects up to 20.000 euros (each) to tackle the economic and social consequences of COVID-19 pandemics and lockdown measures; • 6-12 grants provided to youth and social services projects ranging from 5-10.000 euros (each) implemented to support youth and vulnerable groups affected by COVID-19 pandemics and lockdown measures; • Up to 20 CSOs improve in dimensions of CSO Development Index; • Around 200,000 citizens of Montenegro reached through campaign; • Policy recommendations for youth and social service providers developed and presented to authorities; • Set of CSOs self-regulation recommendations created and presented to civil society in Montenegro.
