Lithuanian NGDO platform joins the network

The Lithuanian platform for development NGOs, Vystomojo bendradarbiavimo platforma (VBP), joined the European Network for CIGS in January 2023. VBP represents a great diversity of Lithuanian NGOs active in development. Among the members of their platform are not only CIGS but as well larger Lithuanian NGOs. The majority of NGOs in Lithuania is though quite small. Lithuania is one of these countries that have rather recently joined the aid community.

The geographic focus of Lithuanian development cooperation is on the countries from the Eastern partnership, Kenya, Ghana, Uzbekistan, and Nigeria.  Lithuanian NGOs focus on themes as;  democracy development, education, gender, health care, climate change, civil society, ICT and inclusion of minorities. Many of the Lithuanian CIGS work on global citizenship education and promotion of the SDGs.
