SAIA-SCTS annual report 2000 .doc

  1. 1. SAIA-SCTS annual report 2000 INTRODUCTION For several reasons, the year 2000 was exceptional for the Slovak Academic Information Agency - Service Center for the Third Sector. Certainly, one of them was the fact that we celebrated the 10th anniversary since we started our activities. On March 24, in the Primacialny Palace in Bratislava, we held a round table discussion titled "Ten-Year Road" and invited our friends to review our successful accomplishments for thousands of people and institutions both in the academic community and in the big family of nonprofit organizations which we came to contact through our activities. In the ten years of its existence, SAIA-SCTS and all people who connected part of their professional life to it, have gone through much experience. They had to learn to collect and process information and manage many new and in our country yet-unknown educational projects. In the process, they had to familiarize themselves with modern management of nonprofit organizations, develop grant proposals to be able to train others committed to working in the nonprofit, independent sector which is so important to modernization of Slovakia. The exceptional quality of the year 2000 was also confirmed by other events in the life of our organization. After a four-year forced break, the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic renewed its co-operation with SAIA-SCTS to provide information about study abroad, organize selection of recipients of Ministry of Education scholarships, administer the bilateral program Austria - Slovakia Co-Operation in Science and Education and the multilateral program CEEPUS. That decision was made based on results of an open tender of the Ministry of Education. SAIA-SCTS successfully continued to perform its traditional functions and programs. The steady interest in its services and activities, as documented by results in this annual report, was especially pleasing. Thanks to our network of branch offices working in all regions of Slovakia we organized a number of domestic and international seminars and round table discussions on current issues such as NGO Legislation, NGO Financing, NGO Boards etc. We also held a series of seminars on international programs for universities, information seminars for students of secondary schools and universities. We published new NGO directories, additional fact sheets about the nonprofit sector and occasional publications related to NGO issues and study abroad. We provided space for discussion on a number of new initiatives which originated in response to current happenings in the society. We developed co-operation with both state administration and local governments. We strengthened our position in several international projects, putting natural emphasis on partnership with organizations in Central and Eastern Europe. In 2000, the organization leadership also changed. One of the founders of SAIA-SCTS and its Executive Director in previous three years Pavol Demeš decided to leave and use his many years of nonprofit sector experience in an international foundation. He remains connected to SAIA- SCTS as a member of its Board. As of January 1, 2000, Katarína Košťálová was named the Executive Director and Oľga Šubeníková her Deputy. They are both founders of the organization and worked as members of the SAIA-SCTS Executive Committee until 2000 together with Pavol Demeš. SAIA-SCTS Board made a decision to keep two members of the Executive Committee until further notice. In September 2000, we started working with SAIA-SCTS Board to address the issue of organizational transformation into a network of independent nonprofit organizations with more independence and responsibility given to individual branch offices. It is a logical step connected to the planned public administration reform. It is aimed to further improve effectiveness of the organization and create space for its even more active involvement in regional activities. We believe this step will make the organization stronger and will serve as a good foundation for its

  3. 3. information regarding Konto Globtel Program. Information was provided to various institutions in the Trnava region such as hospitals, museums, schools, businesses, regional offices, district offices, and local governments. Together with SAIA-SCTS Trnava, also the Trenčín office was one of the most active ones in cross-sectoral co-operation. Office Director Dagmar Lišková helped create very active contacts with local governments in the Trenčín region. Mutual discussions dealt with regional co- operation, community initiatives, financial management of NGOs, Phare programs CBC, ISPA and SAPARD, cross-border co-operation, education, construction of the House of NGOs etc. The office organized meetings with representatives of the Trenčín Regional Office, ministries, Office of the Government of SR and businesses. One of the important projects in the area of cross-sectoral co-operation was a survey of how much and how the state contributes to NGO financing within its budgetary rules. This project was managed in Bratislava by Marianna Belejová and resulted in the publication Current Public Financing of Non-Governmental Organizations in Slovakia in both Slovak and English versions. It provides a picture of public financing forms used currently in Slovakia and their relation to the State Budget. It shows mechanisms used by individual ministries and state funds to award grants from the State Budget as direct financial support to NGOs. In its last part, it provides detailed overview of public funding disbursed in the form of grants and subsidies within individual ministries' sectors in 1999. International Activities In 2000, SAIA-SCTS continued its active co-operation with partner organizations abroad and presented results achieved by Slovak NGOs at various international events. A. Co-Operation with Partner Organizations in Abroad Cross-Border Co-Operation Dagmar Lišková from SAIA-SCTS Trenčín participated in the First International Conference of Euroregions in Slovakia and Their Cross-Border Partners. She has already organized several round table discussions on similar topics for Slovak and Czech NGOs as well as special ceremony to mark the signing of agreement to establish the Bílé-Biele Karpaty Euroregion. SAIA-SCTS Žilina, as represented by Alena Mičicová, participated in the development of Regional Operational Plans and worked on common projects with partner organizations from the Czech Republic. The Prešov office, represented by Juliana Hajduková, started co-operation with a Polish organization from Krosno and discussed possible co-operation of the two neighboring regions. Under the auspices of the international organization CIVICUS, SAIA-SCTS, Austrian organization World of NGOs and Hungarian European House the conference Building Bridges of Democracy. The conference was held on a boat on the Danube between Vienna and Bratislava and was attended by more than 40 participants from Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, and Belarus. Orpheus - Co-Operation in Central and Eastern Europe Within the Orpheus Program of the European Foundation Centre in Brussels which links around 30 service centers from 15 countries of Central and Eastern Europe, SAIA-SCTS chaired the program's Advisory Board and actively contributed to decisions about activities of this informal network of partner institutions. Co-operation with organizations from Central and Eastern Europe took various shapes in 2000. Whether it was a meeting organized in Warsaw, with its discussion Ten Years of Civil Society
  4. 4. ACADEMIC ADVISING AND MOBILITY Based on its contract with the Ministry of Education of SR to provide services, the Slovak Academic Information Agency - Service Center for the Third Sector organized and performed administration of the program Academic Mobility. The Program is co-financed by the Open Society Foundation in Bratislava. Thanks to the grant from OSF and financial contribution from the Ministry of Education of SR, SAIA-SCTS was able to continue providing information about study abroad in 2000 in Bratislava and in its branch offices, as well as to inform the public about existing scholarships, organize open competitions for scholarships, organize seminars on international co-operation for universities, offer seminars to people interested in study abroad, produce information brochures about study abroad, publish the monthly Bulletin SAIA and provide information through the Internet. In 2000, SAIA-SCTS provided information about scholarships from by the Ministry of Education to more than 6000 people (close to 3000 in Bratislava alone) and processed 1118 applications for scholarship stays (study, research and language stays) in the academic year 2000/2001 to Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ukraine. SAIA-SCTS worked with domestic and foreign organizations in selecting students for foreign study stays. For ten years, it has helped promote scholarships for the one-year postgraduate study program in European Studies at the College of Europe in Bruges (Belgium) and in Natolin (Poland). For the sixth year, it has provided information about the $2000 grant awarded by the New York-based American Fund for Czechoslovak Relief and helped to select the candidates. Since 1999, SAIA-SCTS has worked with the Slovak Gas Industry in Bratislava (SPP) to select students for SPP scholarships for one-semester study stays abroad. SAIA-SCTS helped arrange study/research/scientific stays for 136 applicants from 20 countries at Slovak universities and institutes of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in the spring semester of 1999/2000 and the academic year 2000/2001. Interest remains steady in information about study abroad, about language and standardized tests, and about how to prepare materials for scholarship applications. In 2000, more than 26,000 people visited SAIA-SCTS to inquire about study abroad, which averages 105 visitors per day and 13 visitor per day per each office. The highest average daily number of people visited Bratislava office - 35 and the least number of 3 people visited the Trenčín office. The greatest interest was shown in scholarships of the Ministry of Education of SR (over 6000 people). Broken down according to individual countries, the greatest interest was shown in Germany (over 3300 people), followed by Austria (over 1600 people) and United States (over 1500 people).

In 2000, SAIA-SCTS also produced publications on NGO management or related to interesting areas of the nonprofit sector in Slovakia. One such publication Civic Advocacy or How to Achieve Change in Society was authored by Pavol Demeš who draws both from his foreign experience and general conclusions from the many remarkable cases of civic advocacy by nonprofit organizations in Slovakia. The goal of the publication is to stimulate interest and enhance understanding of civic advocacy. The publication How to Start an NGO, authored by Nora Beňáková and Zuzana Kalináčová, describes methods to register nonprofit organizations in Slovakia.

It includes sample bylaws and statutes of individual types of NGOs. Another publication Volunteer Management, compiled translation of selected chapters from the publication of two acclaimed American consultants Steve McCurley and Rick Lynch, is aimed for anybody who works with volunteers. Managers of volunteer programs can use it to learn in detail about the volunteer management process, find practical advice on how to recruit volunteers, how to work with them, motivate, evaluate and keep them and how to create good relations between volunteers and paid organization staff. The publication authored by Marianna Belejová Current State of Public Financing of Non- Governmental Organizations in Slovakia presents a picture of forms of public financing in Slovakia (their current state and their relation to the State Budget) and shows mechanisms used to assign funding by selected ministries and state funds in the form of direct financial support to NGOs from the State Budget. In its last part, it presents a detailed overview of how state funding was distributed by individual ministries in 1999. SAIA-SCTS also continued to publish informational and analytical materials within the series Facts about the Third Sector in Slovak and English language versions. In 2000, a total of five fact sheets were published - Volunteers of the Velvet Revolution, Stupava Conference, Public Financing of NGOs, Public Financing of NGOs According to Individual Ministries, and the Profile of Nonprofit Sector in Slovakia.

In 2000 the publication Study in Canada was produced by Zuzana Kratochvílová. It brings information about educational opportunities in Canada, describes ways to apply to schools in Canada, and mentions possibilities for receiving a scholarship. Two practical handbooks of previous years How to Successfully Pass Entrance Exam and How to Write a Curriculum Vitae (in Slovak and English, respectively), were succeeded in 2000 by the publication How to Write a Curriculum Vitae in French. It was produced by Nora Bánovská in co- operation with Ronan Corfdyr.
