World community and civil society organizations (SCOs) faced new, unusual challenges in 2020. Global pandemic affected all SCO sustainability dimensions, which are being reported on each year by the Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index (SCOSI) of the USAID. 24th annual SCOSI emphasizes that the pandemic served as a litmus test, which showed the maturity of civic society in Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia and pinpointed their resilience and vulnerabilities.
SCOs in Lithuania, just like in other countries, reacted to the increase in need of services, crowdfunded money in pandemic affected economy, had to look for new ways to help most vulnerable society groups due to quarantine limitations, as well as fulfill their missions under new conditions.
