The Covid-19 pandemic emergency, accompanied by quarantine conditions, has created a series of challenges for the work of the non-profit sector. These challenges, among other things, require new alternative forms of work for the staff of organizations as well as the provision of services to beneficiaries.
In response to the non-profit sector needs under the Covid-19 emergency, Partners Albania and the National Resource Centre for Civil Society, as part of the rapid support packages provided are offering free access ZOOM Platform, supporting civil society organisations in conducting their activities online.
Since the beginning of May, continuing of the online activity through the platform was provided for 41 organizations working in the field of human rights, environmental protection, tourism development and agriculture, good governance, education, provision of services for people with disabilities, women and girls, children and youth, marginalized groups, etc. These organizations work and contribute with their activity throughout the country, specifically in: Shkodra, Fushë-Arrëz, Tropojë, Dibër, Tirana, Durrës, Lushnje, Vlora, Elbasan, Librazhd, Berat, Gjirokastër, Përmet and Saranda.
Only within the first month of making the platform available, the beneficiary organizations have conducted about 45 trainings, 60 meetings with various actors and interest groups and have provided about 40 other online services such as information sessions, counselling sessions, etc. for the groups they serve.
