MISSION

Our Association is a socially responsible non-profit organisation that can be defined with precision by a single abbreviation – an NGO. The Friends of Dečani Association seeks no profit and, while remaining apolitical and non-sectarian, its main goals continue to be social solidarity and cultural promotion.

Our principal activity is to support, promote and provide information about cultural and humanitarian activities of the Visoki Dečani Monastery, located in Kosovo, which has been proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Our Association plans to produce, process and distribute print, electronic, photographic and audio materials in order to raise awareness about the Visoki Dečani Monastery.

Our Association plans to encourage valorization, preservation, restoration and development of the cultural and architectural site of the Visoki Dečani Monastery through recruitment and training of highly specialized operational units.

Our Association wants to raise awareness about an excellent work, carried out by the Italian armed forces in Kosovo that have been engaged in peace missions for decades. We seek to promote their activities underlining the importance of their work that not only ensures protection, but leaves a positive mark on the European collective consciousness.
