The workshop is part of an Erasmus+ Project “CSOs online”. CSOs are Civil Society Organisations, such as Non-Profit Organisations and Non-Governmental Organisations. “CSOs online” is a project for the development of nonprofit sector workers’ digital skills, especially in the field of online communication and fundraising, based on the exchange of experience, innovative practices and know-how in the frame of transnational partner meetings.
Since 1994, Nonprofit Information and Training Centre (NIOK) Foundation has been working on strengthening civil society in Hungary by providing support and capacity building services to CSOs, facilitating dialogue on civil society issues, while enhancing the non-profit sector links to decision makers and donors.
