 The aim of the project "Get to know yourself in Northern Latgale" is to strengthen and provide support for the civic participation activities of the residents of Northern Latgale and to promote cooperation between NGOs and active communities.

The NGO has conducted an express survey of both the NGOs involved in the activities and the Latgale NGOs with which cooperation has been established in order to determine the needs of the NGO sector. The express survey reaffirms that the activities of non-governmental organizations in the region of participatory democracy, as well as in the decision-making process, are not permanent, active and of high-quality. It is often missing an important stage - cooperation of organizations with local governments. The main reasons are lack of experience and knowledge, lack of qualified and permanent specialists, lack of knowledge of the methods of involvement of citizens as members and volunteers in NGOs, lack of funding, etc. 

In the course of the project, the NGO “Ritineitis” has envisaged the following set of activities: establishment and operation of the North Latgale NGO platform, North Latgale citizens' initiatives, civic education cycle, information campaigns, training course, Northern Latgale NGO annual event, as well as examples of good practice in volunteering.

Within the project the following activities will be implemented: improved Northern Latgale inhabitants’ civic participation, especially the vulnerable ones and young people; promoted social responsibility in the communities of Northern Latgale; ensured the implementation of measures appropriate to the needs of the communities; the NGO platform and mutual co-operation of the North Latgale municipalities strengthened.
