SPARK is a non-for-profit, non-political NGO with headquarters in Amsterdam and three field-offices in SEE. Our mission is to develop higher education and entrepreneurship to empower young, ambitious people to lead their conflict affected societies into prosperity. SPARK is determined to increase the number of sustainable jobs and economic prospects for youth in conflict affected regions through the improvement of higher education and the development of the local private sector. We aim to carry out our work in a sustainable way that demands the pro-active participation of local communities.
SPARK has developed projects in various parts of South Eastern Europe. Since 1996, SPARK has initiated and supported regional academic summer/winter universities in Tuzla, Pristina, K. Mitrovica and in FYROM. In total, around 6.000 students from SEE have collected over 300 years of European Study Credits (ECTS). Other projects include, business start-up support for youth, business skills training and employability activities and the introduction of ECTS universities. In 2009 SPARK opened International Business College in K. Mitrovica. Over the past 13 years, SPARK has built an extensive network made up of students, professors and university management in the Western Balkans, but also worldwide.

The King Baudouin Foundation is an independent, pluralistic foundation working in Belgium and at the European and international level. We seek to change society for the better, so we invest in inspiring projects and individuals.
In 2013 we provided a total of 28 million euro in support to 2,000 organisations and individuals. A total of 2,000 people generously made their expertise available on independent juries, steering groups and advisory committees. The Foundation also organises round table discussions on important social issues, shares research results through (free) publications, enters into partnerships and encourages philanthropy, working 'through' rather than 'for' the King Baudouin Foundation.
The Foundation was set up in 1976, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of King Baudouin's reign.
