Euclid to launch training programme in the Balkans

Euclid, the European network of third sector leaders, has received £150,000 from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for a new training programme in the Balkans. The network said the project would also benefit UK charities.

The 18-month long project will consist of a series of masterclasses for charities in Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro, covering issues such as sustainable funding, relations with government and governance.

“This project aims to have an impact at two levels: in the region and between the region and the rest of Europe,” said Filippo Addarii, director of Euclid. “Many British charities work extensively with eastern European immigrants," he added.

Stephen Bubb, chief executive of UK chief executives body Acevo and general secretary of Euclid, said the funding was very important. “Strengthening civil society and increasing political transparency in emerging democracies needs a strong third sector and well developed leadership,” he said.
