Local news, 14.08.2015

The Swiss-funded Democratic Society Promotion (DSP) project, implemented by the Kosovar Civil Society Foundation (KCSF) has launched the call for applications for the diaspora component project grants. 

The overall goal of the Democratic Society Promotion (DSP) initiative is to support the development of a democratic society in Kosovo. In the period 2014-2018, besides support for projects implemented through Kosovo-based organizations, DSP will offer support also for diaspora organizations.

Under this framework, DSP will provide project grants supporting existing and new civic potential among the diaspora.
