About Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility project:
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen and promote civil society’s role in reforms and democratic changes taking place in the Eastern Neighbourhood countries, through increased participation in the fulfilment of Neighbourhood Policy objectives.
The purpose of this project is to act as an integrator and capitalisation centre, creating synergies between the various bilateral and regional initiatives for civil society and contributing to the replication and sustainability of their results.
The project aims to collect and develop initiatives for capitalisation on the previous experience of EU projects/ grants along with the following main results areas: mapping studies, e-learning for and training of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), hackathons on IT applications for CSO’s better involvement in holding governments to account, Civil Society Fellowships and promoting the role of CSOs in the democratic changes in their countries.
The Stress Management Course
The double impact of a Covid pandemic and war in Ukraine has forced the project to change its operations and to address changing priorities of the targeted civil society. Thus, the capacity-building activities are now delivered ‘remotely’ through online platforms and remote coaching, and a newly identified priority is the need to build capacity for stress management among CSO staff, volunteers, and the communities they are supporting.
The Stress Management course will be based on a type of ‘training-of-trainers’ approach, with a group of 20 CSO managers/staff capacitated to provide a basic-to-intermediate level of support on stress management and psychological first aid to their staff, volunteers, and selected members of the communities that they are working with. The course will involve the online delivery of a number of modules, with participants being coached between modules on ‘homework assignments’, and on completion of the modules, participants will be coached through some initial support activities.
In addition to training materials to support the delivery of the course, the service provider is also expected to produce a brief ‘good practice’ document, focussed on the context of EaP, to be disseminated within the project’s beneficiary groups.
