Public is recognized as an organization that establishes fruitful partnerships with other civil society organizations, with the business sector as well as with public institutions.
Partnerships with Civil society organizations
Public provides direct consultancy, advice and support in implementing various activities of different CSOs from the country. Some of the challenges of the CSOs are also challenges for Public, and we solve them with joint efforts.
The demands of these constituents are articulated in areas that are closely related to the mission and activities of Public, indicating that they embrace our basic principles.
Some of the constituents find their interest in partnership with Public because of promotion of their goals and activities, and others because of the promotion of their social responsibility practices and acts, as well as promotion of issues connected with building public awareness (campaigns for promotion of organ donation, rare diseases, and environmental issues).
The distribution and sales of the street paper Face to face, which is published by Public, takes place through partner organizations from Negotino, Struga, Ohrid, Bitola, Kumanovo and Skopje.
Partnerships with Corporate / business sector
Domestic and international companies are partners and collaborators in several social responsibility campaigns and a number of other promotional activities that were organized by Public. Some of them supported the vendors of Face to face, within the activity named Face to face as a guest. This activity facilitates organized sales in companies where the employees are introduced to the model of a work integration social enterprise, as well as with the street paper for sustainable development. At the same time, these direct sales are very important for our vendors, which was seen as an important motivation in further socialization and integration. Several companies are engaged as supporters of the street paper Face to Face, by sponsoring an issue or through a yearly advert of their corporate responsibility practices placed in each edition.

Knauf – Strong bags – Campaign for work integration of vulnerable people, making reusable bags
