The Association of Citizens Work In Progress (WIP) is a non-governmental organisation founded in 2001 by a group of young Serbian activists that wanted to be part of the ongoing changes. Everybody brought in the association his/her enthusiasm and put at disposal experience, knowledge, know how and neworks. WIP challenges injustice and amplifies new voices of local activists in Serbia to promote, protect, and fulfill human rights. Our task is being close to the weakers, supporting the spreading of non formal education, human rights, culture, youth culture in particular, and of the active citizenship. We are willing to improve society, in making it more human and inclusive where rights are respected.
Our Vision is a society for all built on the universal principles of human rights.
