Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre (DMWC) is a non-governmental non-profit organization promoting Macedonian culture among the international community in Macedonia and abroad. At the same time, we organise events aimed at representing and promoting other cultures in Macedonia and encourage intercultural dialogue.
Founded in 2009, DMWC operates from its premises in Alzirska Street in Taftalidze. Four times a year we publish Macedonia Welcome Centre Magazine that focuses on cultural, historical and tourist information of interest to the international community and highlights some of the DMWC activities. We run classes and organise activities serving the needs of the international community and offering it additional learning, teaching and socialising opportunities.
As a socially responsible NGO, DMWC is committed to charitable activities, especially for the benefit of vulnerable children in Macedonia, and provides volunteering opportunities for members of the international community.
DMWC is financed by donations, sales of MWC Magazine, and its commercial services which include:
