RE2020 is one of the organizations that participate at the mentoring support within the project "Legal assistance and support to strengthen the capacity for advocacy and sustainability of local civil society organizations".
Therefore, our team was present at the initial meeting held on September 20, 2019, at the premises at the Civic Resource Center in Skopje.
During the meeting, representatives of each of the organizations selected had the opportunity to present their work and get acquainted with the work of other organizations. At the same time, the mentoring program was presented, i.e. which it includes, and the dynamics of the activities are agreed upon. The three areas in which mentoring will be provided are:
1. Internal structure and organization,
2. Advocacy and lobbying and
3. Development and implementation of projects
Consequently, within the first component of the project, on October 10, 2019, RE2020' members welcomed the team of young lawyers in their premises, where they openly discussed the various opportunities for organizational strengthening and development of the association. Immediate contact was established with the lawyer Natalija Milenkova, with whom we are working together to update the documentation for internal functioning.
