      "IRSH" association was funded by a group of students and professors
      in April
      1994 and licensed by the Albanian Ministry of Culture Youth and
      Sports in
      June 1994.
      “IRSH“ is an umbrella NGO (with 10 NGO members and around 200
      members who for the most part are volunteer) where individuals and
      NGO-s as

      At the beginning of 1999 started collaboration with the "Threshold

      3) How to promote democratic structures and citizens participation in
      in the region of Northern Albania
      4) Promoting the creation of other small non-governmental
      organisations (NGOs)
      in villages in Northern Albania ("snowball effect") with the aim of
      promotioning these general projects aims (as listed here) and also

      democratic network between these NGOs
      5) Training people how to get free and independent information from
