What We Do?

Zajecar Initiative is operating within three strategic directions: Community Development, Youth Empowerment, Philanthropy Development and Local Democratic Governance. Please click on the links to learn more about these programs.

 The impact that ZI seek to achieve in the society is best explained through ZI’s own theory of change: If citizens themselves are enabled and supported to respond to local issues themselves and shape community according to their needs and ideas (what ZI is doing through its small grants programs), if community identify and use own strengths and resources to develop (what ZI seek to achieve by developing community philanthropy together with SFCF) while young people, who are next to take care of the communities, have been constantly empowered (what ZI is tend to do through its youth programs), and if there are meaningful opportunities for citizens to hold their governments accountable and demand responsible governance, local communities can be a better place to live for all of its citizens.
