NGOs play a crucial role in ensuring the common values of the European Union and Georgia - Herczyński

Non-governmental organizations play a crucial role in ensuring the common values of the European Union and Georgia, reads the statement of the EU Ambassador to Georgia.

“Today, International Day of Non-Governmental Organizations, we celebrate the work of non-governmental organizations around the world. Non-governmental organizations play a crucial role in ensuring the common values of the EU and Georgia, such as democracy, freedom, rule of law and human rights, including the rights of minorities.

The role that NGOs play in government monitoring is an essential element of any democracy. NGOs are often providers of vital social services, particularly for vulnerable communities. Georgia benefits from its active civil society. Non-governmental organizations make a significant contribution to the process of Georgia"s integration into the European Union.

Their work is a vital bridge between citizens and political leaders. They amplify sounds that might not otherwise be heard.

On the occasion of the International Day of Non-Governmental Organizations, let me reaffirm the commitment of the European Union to support the work of non-governmental organizations in Georgia and abroad. Ensuring their essential involvement is crucial to building a fairer, more equal and prosperous future for all”, - says Paweł Herczyński.
