About the project

In recent years, digital transformation has reached every sector of the economy. NGOs, as key actors in the social field for the European Union 🇪🇺, and a vital part of the Europe 2020 strategy, cannot be left behind in this matter. Digital transformation implies greater efficiency in the structure, processes, and results of organizations. We can highlight some of the improvements that digital transformation entails: Greater access to human, technical and monetary resources & greater impact of the results of the organization's projects.

We will create a toolkit ⚒️ which we will bring digitization closer to NGOs and their workers, divided into 4 dimensions: web design🎨, content creation🤳, internal management💻, and visibility and impact🌍.

Video editing - April 2023

Popedu started to cut all the videos for the partners. We are using iMovie for the editing. iMovie is a free video editing application made by Apple for the Mac, the iPhone, and the iPad. The toolkit is slowly coming together, and we are so excited to soon present the first final videos to the partners.

Kick off “ NGO Village” - Online

Finally, a new project again! We had a great start into our project "NGO Village". For the kick-off we could unfortunately only meet online, but face-to-face meetings will follow soon. Here is to the next steps and great collaboration with our partners from Croatia, Italy and Spain.

We love Europe.
We love Erasmus+.

These projects were made possible by funding of Erasmus+, the European Union programme for education, youth, training and sport. A special thanks to the team of our National Agency and the Executive Agency.
