A Slovak non-profit organisation, the Education Center for Non-Profit Organizations (CVNO) is getting close to completing a pilot educational program for NGOs in Serbia, the SITA newswire wrote.
"This program was carried out successfully in Slovakia between 1998 and 2003 in
cooperation between CVNO and the university in Banská Bystrica," Tomáš Findra of CVNO told the SITA newswire on June 22.
In Serbia there had been only short-term courses with a narrow specification. "This is the first comprehensive programme in Serbia, prepared in cooperation between the academic and non-governmental sectors with a very practical focus," said Findra.
The essence of the project, which is supported by €109,000 from the official Slovak development assistance programme, Slovak Aid, was the introduction of the course Economics and Management of NGOs into the management curriculum taught at university in the Serbian city of Niš.
The project is ending in June after a year and a half of operation. It was prepared and carried out by managers of CVNO in cooperation with Slovakia’s Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica, Serbian University in Niš and the Serbian NGO LDA.
