Etkiniz EU Programme continue the support processes we provide you with not from our office but from our homes.
In April and May 2020, Etkiniz Team continued organising webinars, preparing new documents and promoting Etkiniz supported outputs.
Discussions are held with CSOs that carry out monitoring work in the webinars organised once a week. Follow the Etkiniz website for weekly webinar announcements and registration. The webinars are in Turkish.
