The Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation provided capacity building grants and training for 20 CSOs along the Balkan Route in Serbia and Macedonia with the aim to build a network of CSOs and enhance their capacities in terms of Human Rights monitoring, reporting and referral to competent institutions. The Help on the route network is part of the project “Help on the Route- Fostering protection of human rights of migrants passing through Macedonia and Serbia” implemented by the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation in partnership with ASB, NSHC, and and the Macedonian Helsinki Committee. The Project is financed by the European Union Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights.

From jun 2017 to December 2018  the Help on the route network will work on development and deployment of networks Quick Response mechanism defining the set of rules and procedures for CSOs, by which to act when approached by migrants in need for human rights’ protection and to efficiently cooperate with local governments, domestic and international institutions. The organizations will build their capacities  to competently and timely provide the immediate assistance to the migrants whose human rights have been violated and  to address the potential issues of human right violations identified in the field, in such a way to report those cases to both domestic and international institutions.
