The representatives from the CSO ‘Ambrela” from Skopje, are satisfied of the workshop, too. “I think that this workshops are rely useful because we, from the civil society organizations, don’t have very large capacities and knowledge in line of preparing project proposals for IPA, EU and other funds available for application. Here, we have an opportunity to exchange experience and knowledge, and also this is a good occasion to make an agreement among us for mutual application on the calls which are relevant for our organizations” said Ms. Ljatife Sikovska from “Ambrela” from Skopje.
