Volunteer support for the Winter Kotor Carnival

After the break caused by the corona virus, the NGO Naša Akcija has finally returned to the field with its team to support the Kotor Winter Carnival. A team of 20 young people from Kotor, Tivat and Podgorica joined this chilly morning to help the event. As generations are constantly changing in our country, this was the first opportunity for many young volunteers to attend or participate in the carnival. All praise and a big thank you to the organizers TO Kotor, and the realized activity is part of the program Nature for the mental and physical health of young people, which is supported by the European endowment for democracy.


Volunteer support for the arrangement of the city garden in Podgorica

On Saturday, February 26, we again joined our friends from the NGO Paradigm. On the ground, we participated in the first planting with volunteers to help build the first urban garden at the Tološka forest location in Podgorica.

As this is exactly what the NGO Naša Akcija is doing through its program Nature for the mental and physical health of young people, it was our pleasure to help develop this wonderful idea.

Mapping of street dogs in the municipality of Tivat

NVO Prijatelji pasa organizovali su juče u projektnoj saradnji sa NVO Naša akcija mapiranje uličnih pasa na potezu Donji Đuraševići, Krašić, Radovići. Nažalost ovi napušteni psi nemaju veću vidljivost u javnosti, tj. da budu udomljeni, ali kroz projekat koji sprovode partneri iz NVO Prijatelji pasa će se to u budućnosti mijenjati na bolje! Naši mladi volonteri su em uživali u lijepom subotnjem danju, em su učinili dobro djelo💛

This event was attended by young people from the NGO Naša Akcija interested in the field of entrepreneurship. Also, members of the Tivat Youth Team joined. The workshop was held by Carine Hitchcock, the founder of Tivat Mini Condos, who is a French-British citizen and has been living in Montenegro since 2008. She moved to Montenegro after studying business administration and finance at La Sorbonne University in Paris. She worked in the marina for super-yachts Porto Montenegro in Tivat in 2009 as a business manager. After that, she started her own real estate development business “Catareos” and built the first complex of 12 luxury eco-friendly apartments in the hills overlooking the Tivat Bay and launched a complementary business focused on long-term rentals “Rentals Montenegro” to help the growing number of expats who settle in Montenegro to find accommodation suitable for living throughout the year.

During the workshop, there was talk about the departure of young people from Montenegro. Ms. Hitchcock explained the difficult working conditions, high duties and taxes, the security aspect and many other disadvantages that the citizens of Europe and the USA have in relation to the situation in Montenegro and that Montenegro is a fertile and favorable ground for life and the development of entrepreneurship.
