Its purpose is to respond to the needs of the third sector organizations within a field of culture. Our activity encompasses the assistance to non-governmental institutions that have only entered into the process of developing civil society. We help both the beginners (who will learn what to do to set up an association) and those already present in the NGO area. What is more, we offer office and floor surface at preferential rates together with the substantive support by means of workshops, consultations and networking meetings. Additionally, we suggest where to obtain financial resources and teach how to build the company image. Basically, we do anything we can so that your endeavours are not only enjoyable and effective but also noticeable and in accordance with the law.
