Billy Hooten is a weird kid. He gets beat up a lot, and spends the He gets beat up a lot, and spends the rest of his time doggedly trying to build a robot.
One day, Billy Hooten hears a cry for help coming from the cemetery that borders Billy the Kid and the Vampyres of Vegas:. Nicholas Flamel appeared in J. BTD is led by Mr. Ivan Vejvoda, a leading intellectual, scholar, and political analyst in Serbia and the region. NGOs received 63 percent of the total funding allocated in the financial years of and BTD's head office is located in Belgrade.
BTD accepts proposals on a rolling basis throughout the year. BTD gives priority to proposals which promote "citizen engagement with government, have an impact on public policy, and strengthen leadership skills of individuals and organizations We do both regional, cross-border projects and national, in-country ones. We generally do not have fixed priorities for the countries, however, we continuously monitor the situation in all countries of in the region and we set some annual priorities in fields we consider important to support in a given period of time.
For example, recently we have been emphasising transparency and anti-corruption work in Montenegro. On a regional level, for the second or third year in a row, we are putting an emphasis on youth issues with the aim of promoting the idea of helping youth imagine their future in the region and, in this way, preventing brain drain.
In addition to youth, another priority on the regional level is reconciliation work, especially inside the Dayton triangle and between Serbia and Kosovo, the main post-conflict areas. Our reconciliation work is action and future-oriented.
We are generally not involved in the issue of dealing with the past. We are trying to contribute to normalising present-day relations and to establishing some form of cooperation, that is, re-establishment of cooperation. In this field we have many regional projects. From my point of view, the greatest challenge for anyone involved in development work is to measure the impact of what one does. How can you tell you have been effective in your work? This is extremely difficult to assess as we are all small parts of a much larger whole. In addition, this type of work is often about long-term societal change.
These are things which are difficult to quantify. In this sense, you have to try to see change in more qualitative terms and then think about what the most important contribution is that you have made to that process. When we started our work, our biggest challenge was to set the benchmarks against which we would measure the effect of our operations. That was our challenge; how to recognize success in our work and how to report it. This is still our challenge and I think it will always be a challenge for the entire development sector.
We decided that the best way was to simply tell the stories of our grantees. We have a newsletter which we send out regularly. In this newsletter we tell the stories of the projects we support, and we actually demonstrate that what we do has meaning and can show results. In addition, we show that there is an effect beyond the expiry of the grant and that it really helps people and improves the quality of their lives. This is one part of the story. The other is that we have designed a reporting format which also comprises the quantitative aspects of the work we support, but we are nevertheless more focused on the qualitative aspect.
From our point of view, it is always best to tell the story of what took place or what happened. This conveys the sense of what has been done and it helps people understand. It is important although it is not always the most important thing. Our major goal is defined as "linking citizens with government". In this sense, everything which helps link citizens to institutions is of interest to us. Everything which helps people become active citizens and take part in the process of decision-making can be of interest to the BTD.
This is a broad definition and it can involve many different types of activities.

Beyond this, we must assess the particularities of each different project. Is the project realistic? Is it tangible to carry out? So, yes, sustainability is important but it is not the predominant factor by any means.
