Main activities

ECA was founded in 1993, and has been working for the development of the civil society for the last 20 years. Since 1997 the organization sustains the House of Civic Communities that helped to launch several local organizations. Currently more than 65 communities - formal and non-formal civil organizations, associations, foundations, art groups etc. - are operating in the building, while ECA acts as an umbrella organisation. Besides its infrastructural capabilities ECA provides services, learning possibilities, training activities, forums, research and professional consultancy for NGOs in the region.
The Association currently performs four major functions. It provides services for non-governmental organizations (Civil Information Centre (1) in the region, operates the Baranya County Office of Equal Opportunities (2) and the Baranya County Volunteer Centre (3). These three projects also perform coordinating tasks on their field of expertise. In the Community House (4) diverse cultural and community programs are available every day for the general public. ECA has managed several national and international EU funded projects as well since years. It has developed a network of relationships and contacts, from local to international level.

ECA maintains a 20-year-old fruitful working relationship with the Municipality of Pécs and carries out public services and functions nearly 15 years. The everyday work is regularly assisted by more than fifty volunteers and 19 employees.
