TOPIC: *NGO Virtual Network for the Balkans*
-Note- NGOs are Non-Governmental Organizations.

The DataBase -
Southeast Europe Online (SEE Online)

About the SEE - SouthEast Europe Online
This site is developed by the Applied Research and Communications Fund in Sofia ( under a two-year project sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The project

Southeast Europe Online is designed as a Balkan portal site focusing on creating a virtual network of NGOs in Southeast Europe. The project covers seven (7) countries: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, FR Yugoslavia, Macedonia and Romania.

The Balkans cannot be reconstructed on the basis of nation states alone. The only way to peace, stability and democracy in the region is to create an open society through strengthening the capacity of NGOs in Southeast Europe. SEE Online will support experience and information exchanges, facilitate partnerships among organizations in the region and integration with counterparts in Western Europe and the U.S., and assist linkages with international donor agencies.

The project suggests a pooling together of the information resources of NGOs in SEE into a single Internet platform. The Internet allows NGOs to access a wealth of information and increase the visibility and recognition of their contributions to a world wide audience.

We hope SEEOL to be a virtual meeting point for civil society, as well as a hub of information on the World Wide Web for countries in the region. Through this platform, NGOs will have the opportunity to publicize their initiatives and gain awareness of what is happening in other SEE countries in the spheres of democratic development, political and economic reform, media freedom and human rights.

The information on this site
All resources are maintained in database format in order to allow convenient navigation and searching by categories and key words.
