National Associates / Coordinators - who are they?

This is a topic for the national associates/coordinators to shortly present themselves and leave some contact information, in case any members (especially the ones from the same country) of the community would like to discuss something.

I am the national associate from Moldova. I work with Terre des hommes Moldova since May 2013, as the Communication and Information Coordinator. I do not have formal or practical education/training in child protection, but I learned a lot from the team here in Moldova and from the online resources such as ours. One of the most interesting parts of my activity is the organisation of raising awareness campaign for children and parents. I'm generally very fond of new technologies and believe in their great contribution to the education and information of the population (and specifically professionals, if referring to our Hub).

If anybody has questions or some suggestions, difficulties related to this website and would like to contact me personally (instead of writing on the forum or using other options on the Hub), my email is

Coordinator - Hungary

Dear All, I am introducing myself as well. I sit with Tdh Regional office in Budapest and I am doing the overall coordination of the project - and at the same time I am trying to make sure we also have content in Hungarian on the website! I have been working with Tdh since 2008 as project manager of different projects, I have a background in project management, development, human rights based development and training. Over the years of working with Tdh I have been gradually introduced to the online world and have acquired a lot of experience how to manage websites - which we did with 'Child Protection in Europe'. I am very happy to be part of this amazing initiative and to work with such great colleagues as you! I can be reached at

National Associate - Kosovo

Hi, My name is Kushtrim and I am working as a National Associate for Kosovo. I joined Tdh three months ago, starting at the beginning of February. I was fortunate to work with different international and local organizations who operate/d in Kosovo during more than a decade. I was engaged mainly in civil society sector. My experience is related to project coordination/ management, capacity building and human resource management and I hold an MA degree on Knowledge Management. Overall I can describe my professional background as an interesting pathway and a challenge experienced in a country in transition.

For me the RRC initiative is a great opportunity to participate while being a part of the larger team covering the region and I believe this is a chance to broaden the communication lines between countries through sharing experiences.

For anyone interested to reach me here is my email:

Dear all, I am RRC associate for Bosnia and Herzegovina

I am social worker and working for Save the Children North West Balkans. My areas of interest and engagement to date have enabled me to work on topics such as peace building, human rights, and project cycle management (PCM). I have worked for different organizations, given an opportunity to constantly enhance my knowledge-base and to work with people from different backgrounds and within different culture settings. I believe that RRC is great opportunity to connect with other colleagues around the region and to learn constantly. Also, I believe that we are pioneers in setting environment where children and their protection will be finally recognized as separate department within national systems of protection, and where professionals will use this platform to improve knowledge and skills on daily basis.

For any questions, initatives, partnerships, concerns, etc. you can write me at

Whether anyone have been working in association management for years or just starting out, it's safe to say that busy association executives are always looking for easy, practical ways to better manage the demands of members and employees. apple iphone mobile price in pakistan
