Transfer of RAISE Model to North Macedonia

From the 10th to the 13th of January, a study visit to the Republic of North Macedonia was organized within the RAISE Youth project. This activity was attended by representatives from the Croatian RAISE Youth team, accompanied by RAISE’s external experts and volunteers, totalling seven delegates from Croatia. Adding to the diversity, two women entrepreneurs from Montenegro also joined the study visit.

The primary objective of this study visit was to facilitate the exchange of best practices within the RAISE Youth project. The aim was not only to bolster the development initiatives within the participating counties but also to forge new connections and investigate potential partnerships for replicating the successful RAISE model in the region.

This activity was organized in collaboration with the Association of Business Women – Macedonia, represented by its president, Valentina Disoska. During the visit, participants engaged in official meetings with notable figures such as Mayor of Skopje Danela Arsovska and representatives from the Macedonian Chamber of Commerce. These interactions provided invaluable insights and opportunities to explore synergies for future collaboration and mutual growth.
