Before the pandemic and earthquake, Sisak-Moslavina county was already one of the least developed counties in Croatia, so the situation there only got worse. We want to give support for CSOs engaged in helping the local population in the earthquake-affected areas which themselves suffered significant damage and their work was disrupted or completely disabled when it comes to project implementation and regular activities.  As one of the solutions to the difficult situation of CSOs in Sisak and Petrinja, related to space and capacities, Socio-cultural centres are imposed as a successful model in creating conditions for social development and increasing the quality of life. In addition to providing space and resources to sustain activities, they enable citizens to create, consume, design and propose content of public interest while establishing participatory governance models.
