We invest in organizational development of the Red Cross Branches / City Red Cross of Skopje
The Red Cross of RNM continuously works on building the human and organizational capacities, based on the needs of the Red Cross Branches / City Red Cross of Skopje and the local needs.
In order to provide adequate support for organizational development, in the period from January to May, a methodology and criteria for evaluation of the activities of the Red Cross branches / City Red Cross of Skopje will be implemented.
The expert team of the head office organized trainings for strengthening the capacities of representatives of our Red Cross branches and the City Red Cross of Skopje for conducting the self-assessment process. Overall 33 people were trained to facilitate the self-assessment process.
The methodology for evaluation of the activities of the Red Cross branches / City Red Cross of Skopje will enable us to appraise the positive and negative aspects of the work of the Red Cross branches / City Red Cross of Skopje in order to provide information for undertaking development measures for a more successful work of the national society at all organizational levels. The methodology is based on an assessment of the results achieved by the activities of integral parts of the national society in the following essential areas:
- Organizational development and partnerships
- Volunteer Management
- Financial and material operation
- Information and communication
- Disaster preparedness and response
- Social humanitarian activity
- Mobilization of funds
- Health preventive activity
- First aid

- Project work
The methodology will be carried out in two successive stages:
- Team selection at Red Cross branch / City Red Cross of Skopje level consisting of a management and governing structure
- Conducting a detailed self-assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, and potentials of the Red Cross / RCC within the context of their areas of action
- Assessment carried out by the Responsible Team from the RC Headquarters in order to confirm the data and opinions submitted by the Red Cross branch / City Red Cross of Skopje Self-Assessment Teams.
