VESTA Association is a non-governmental, non-profit organization that supports and contributes molded activities of CSOs and other development actors in building a democratic society that preserves heritage of European values. Our vision is a society of active citizens who use Vesta for detection, initiating and responding to the necessary social changes.

As TACSO VESTA Resource Center we are continuously working on strengthening civil society in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Together with TACSO BiH office we organize conferences, programs, workshops and training programs that bring together civil society organizations and strengthens their capacity and competence in next steps. In addition to gathering the CSOs, very often we invite and talk with decision makers and key stakeholders in our society. Additionally, we try to increase the knowledge and understanding of the European integration process in BiH and bring closer to CSOs and BH society in general, the benefits and advantages of these processes and imrpovement of the environment in which we live and work. While we are in constant communication with civil society, we listen their needs and propose solutions for the challenges and obstacles. Through specifically designed programs and workshops we manage to help in development of the capacity of CSOs, as well as a networks of CSOs in BiH in organizational development and advocacy.

Communication, hard work and being up to date with trends that are happening in society, we want to work more on strengthening and assisting the civil society organizations in BiH. We believe that the civil sector is an important and crucial partner in the process of BiH on its path towards the European Union. For this reason we remain available and at service for CSOs through direct consultations and technical assistance on a daily basis, and invite them to be strengthened and focused creators of social change and the stability of the democratization process in our country.
