Background of the assignment
The general objectives of this project is to strengthen the overall capacities and accountability of the
Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) within the IPA beneficiaries and to guarantee the quality of
services of CSOs and a sustainable role of the CSOs in the democratic process. The main purposes

An important activity under this heading is improving the visibility and image of CSOs and
generating positive publicity and public awareness of the role of the civil society. TACSO
Macedonian Office has addressed this priority with a series of activities. It included building
capacities for improved public relations with particular focus on promotion of CSOs achievements.
This PR capacity building programme resulted with developed PR strategies and communication
plans, developed key messages for the involved organisations aimed at different stakeholders as
well improved individual PR and communication skills of the CSOs representatives. In addition
involved CSOs had a chance for practical application of developed approaches and skills through
the media space provided by TACSO in different media (printed and electronic). Having this media
space available CSOs were in position to bring their missions and their success stories closer to the
general public. This increased and well-structured media presence should eventually result in
improvement of the public trust and CSOs image. In order to check and confirm this TACSO office
