Resource Centre Leskovac
Resurs Centar Leskovac
Resource Centre Leskovac was founded as a part of Resource Centres Network in March 2002 by Swedish Helsinki Committee for human rights and CHRIS Network-Committees for human rights in Serbia with a mission to act as a focal point and interlocutor of local and regional initiatives in different programmes (public advocacy, development, education etc.). Resource Centres are made to be tools and resources in order to increase life style quality in communities. Centres are open for everyone - NGO's and individuals, community in general. Since the target group of Resource Centre Leskovac is communities in general, especially marginalized and vulnerable groups, media, governmental and non-governmental organizations, activities were started just after the founding, stressing the community needs. Resource centre Leskovac is currently working in several fields, all related to community development and its empowerment.
