Synapsis World is an NGO working to support youth based in Debar, North Macedonia. We focus on collaborative projects to improve the lives of children and increase their inclusion in our society. We welcome cooperation from professionals in the fields of psychology, youth work, entrepreneurship, education, & social policy who seek to form positive networks supporting youth. Our organization is created precisely to create the “synapses”, or healthy connections, between youth, parents, & other members of society to benefit the common good of our community.
Our mission is to promote the inclusion of children & young people in our society through projects that equip them with professional skills, positive networks, mentorship, & increased self-esteem to form the “synapses” that build connections to improve our world.
We envision a world where the needs of children are seen as the needs of the community, where children and young people are given opportunities to contribute to society, and where our leaders promote children’s rights as human rights.
