RYCO’s representatives visited International Visegrad Fund to explore ways how to boost youth cooperation in two regions. The meeting, which took place in Bratislava, was attended by RYCO’s Secretary General, Albert Hani, Deputy Secretary General, Denis Piplaš, and Head of Local Branch Office of RYCO in North Macedonia, Vladimir Gjorgjevski, along with key representatives from the International Visegrad Fund, including ambassador Petr Mareš, Executive Director, Maja Wawrzyk, Deputy Executive Director, Kateřina Šrámková, Project Manager, Ewelina Stacherzak, Project Manager, and Lucia Rafaj Becová, Public Relations Manager.
The agenda covered a range of topics, including the Fund’s grant management and project implementation processes, as well as RYCO’s mission and activities. Both organizations are supporting youth mobility and exchange programs and are very much interlinked. That is why we believe sharing knowledge and experience while thinking of mutual cooperation in the future will be beneficial for youth in both of our regions.
Representatives of the Visegrad Fund visited some of the RYCO Local Branch Offices during their visit to Western Balkan last year.
