About us

Association for Educational Development Ekvalis was founded in 2017 as an initiative of several civic activists. Ekvalis is non-profit organistion with activities being implemented in all territories of the country.  Throughout the years, Ekvalis has engaged numerous young people, civic activists, youth workers and educators, teachers, professors, school administration, the Union of High School Students, civic sector and institution representatives in facilitating enabling environment where each individual (and especially those who are marginalized) can freely express and live. In our activities, the participants are included in educational activities where they get familiar with their fundamental human rights (with special focus on gender and sexual orientation), the principles of building democratic societies, peace building and media literacy. As a result of our activities there were numerous interventions in the Macedonian society that triggered significant public response.
