We are looking for foreign and international support to our activity due to 1) poor and tough international donor market for Human Rights/Children's Rights available for Belarus; 2) absence of local culture of philanthropy and financial participation in solution of societal challenges in Belarus both in people and business; 3) active counteraction of excessive intermediaries (local UN and some civic/expert/human rights defenders groups) protecting their unjust control over international donor support to national civil society of Belarus. We become weaker in 2019 because of dirty competition on international donor market, from the side of local UN agencies, and we need for building new partnerships aiming for better outcomes for children in Belarus, and wider in Baltic Region.
