Open Lithuania Foundation (Vilnius)

The Open Lithuania Foundation (OLF) launched its activities in October 1990 as an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organisation, with its main objective being to support the development of an open and democratic civil society in Lithuania during the transition period out of communism. OLF renewed its activities in 2017 with a fresh structure and format, and its projects today are aimed at promoting the formation of an open, active, and tolerant civil society in Lithuania, actively engaging in activities in the spheres of civic engagement, education, research, culture, law, social media, independent media, public health, social areas and, above all, the promotion of a knowledge-based society. OLF works to strengthen the protection of fundamental rights in Lithuania and Europe, and to promote tolerance and support of vulnerable groups in society.
