The Burnout Aid project is an unprecedented international action aimed at preventing burnout among NGO staff and volunteers. The action is implemented in the international partnership of Culture Shock Foundation (Poland), K-Zona (Croatia) and City of Women (Slovenia).
Having been active for many years in the third sector in our countries, we have had a chance to learn about the pros and cons, splendors and shadows of educational and activist work in NGOs. Every day, we see the great value that foundations, associations and informal movements bring to the development of civil society, how they assist in establishing a sense of community, fulfill an educational mission, and support those in need.
We also know about the costs of such work and commitment on the part of educators and activists. We hope that our project will contribute to the creation of safer and friendlier working conditions in the third sector, as well as to the development of cooperation between NGOs throughout Europe.
