Supporting and Empowering Civil Society

Who we are

We believe civil society and independent media are at the heart of social change and progress in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Even in the most difficult environments, active citizens rooted in their communities are vital to the creation of more open and accountable societies.

What we do

We empower changemakers with the knowledge, skills and resources to hold power to account. We help civic groups and independent media connect with their communities, develop better tools and reach new audiences.

How we do it

We provide grants, trainings and professional exchanges. We support human rights lawyers, journalists, rule of law advocates, environmental and anti-domestic violence campaigners, groups documenting war crimes in Ukraine, social businesses, and many other energetic leaders.
