SOLIDARNA’s founders believe that promoting and protecting all generations of human rights – from fundamental freedoms of expression, assembly and association, to right to work, home, healthy environment and basic public goods – requires lasting effort, creativity and strong resilience to all kinds of pressures. Encouraging domestic philanthropy for human rights is viewed as much needed and much belated test of democratic culture in Croatia. Hence, SOLIDARNA strives to earn trust from a broad range of non-state donors both from Croatia and internationally, who understand the value autonomy of human rights activism and are ready to support it, by their donations, in-kind support and public endorsement.
Inspired by the example of Desa & Jerko Baković who donated 600,000.00 kn for poor children and Desa’s words: "It's always better to give than to receive!", we are organizing the first big event to raise additional resources to provide professional support to children in their education and personal development throughout our beautiful country.
