About Us

Germin is a non-governmental organization that uses technology and virtual channels to connect and engage Diaspora in advancing the development and democratization of their home countries. 

Germin is run and supported by a group of Diaspora professionals ranging from the field of public policy, finance, information, technology, law, education, security and diplomacy. We have a wide network of professionals and part-time collaborators, currently residing in 24 countries including the Balkans, Western Europe, and North America.Germin also has a network of 250 partner organizations in the Diaspora, stretching across Europe, United States, Canada, Asia, and Australia.

Etymology –  the meaning of Germin

The word ‘Germin’ is of Latin origin meaning ‘to grow, to prosper’. The term has been used in many settings throughout its rich background of historical and linguistic contexts,  continuously underlining the importance that change has had in the advancement of societies. Making use of the latter, our organization aims to establish a solid foundation on which Kosova will eventually build its right walls on, for the betterment of the country in particular and its people in general.
