5 Years of Western Balkans Fund

Surrounded by distinguished guests, partners and friends, the Western Balkans Fund celebrated yesterday 5 years since establishment.

In those five years, WBF has successfully supported financially 102 Regional projects, creating a network of more than 4.500 stakeholders and more than 20.000 direct beneficiaries.

36 new winners of the 5 Call for Proposals, co-funded by the European Union, will be announced in the coming weeks.

On this day, we want to sincerely thank you all, our dear followers, for believing in our mission and for following our events.

We also want to thank:

The Contracting Parties, the Ministries of Foreign Affairs for their continuous support

The European Union, who holds a crucial role in the growth of our Fund

The Swiss Government, which backs our diversification program

The Japanese Government, which allows WBF to be an organisation much bigger than the grants we provide

The International Visegrad Fund, for the support that has provided since day one of our establishment

The Peace Nexus Foundation, for all the expertise and generous backing

RYCO, Central European Initiative and many other friends, who made possible for us to look at the future with pride and the belief than in the next 5 years, we will be able to shape even more, the future of our common home.

Thank you!
