The U.S. Embassy proudly supported and participated in the annual “NGO Market” non-profit fair at Forum Karlin in Prague on April 11. About 250 NGOs from various fields including human rights, culture, environment, volunteering and education were given the opportunity to present their activities to a broad cross-section of the public, to establish new partnerships, to address potential sponsors and volunteers, and to gain valuable know-how needed for successful NGO-management.
The accompanying program included workshops, seminars, a discussion on NGOs and disinformation, social media, and social entrepreneurship. The one-day event, which has been growing in size and scope since its first year in 2000, is organized by the Forum 2000 Foundation.
The U.S. Embassy supports a vibrant civil society in the Czech Republic and elsewhere.
