About this grant

Community Building Mitrovica leads and supports a wide range of projects with a strong emphasis on the participation of people from all of the city’s ethnic groups into concrete activities and community development initiatives. The grantee’s activities during the grant period will include strengthening accountability and transparency of governmental decision-making through citizen-led monitoring activities, empowering young people and women to be active in the community and across ethnic divisions, implementing a large community infrastructure investment program, and strengthening communication across borders through media and cultural events. During 2012-2013, the grantee supported the further development of three independent organizations that grew out of its projects, conducted a range of educational programming in peacebuilding and human rights, organized the International Youth Conference of the Forum for Cities in Transition, and increased its leadership and management capacities.
