Why support the Consortium?
We seek systemic changes
While our member organizations provide direct aid to migrants, we utilize their know-how and experience to seek changes in legislature and practice of relevant authorities. By working with decision makers, civil servants and the media we want to improve the conditions for foreigners living in this country, including visa and permit procedures, rights of foreign workers, social securities for long-term residents, etc.
We want to improve public opinion on migration
Through our public events, publications, social media accounts and communication with the media we participate in the public discussion on migration in this country. We promote a fact-based open dialogue, provide the public and media with essential news and insights from the field that are not readily available, all in order to change and improve the public opinion on migration, which has declined dramatically in the past couple of years.
Grants provide no long-term support
There is little stable financial support for NGOs like ours from public or European institutions in the Czech Republic. Resources being distributed to non-profits have recently come under threat, due to political tensions. In order to achieve lasting changes and continue our work without intermissions, we need consistent financial support for salaries and other expenses that are less likely to be covered by grants like rent, media relations, special publications.
We are unique
The Consortium is the only association of migration-focused NGOs in the Czech Republic, and one of very few such institutions in Europe.
