What do we do?

OEF’s goal is to contribute to the development of open society in Estonia and other countries. Over the past 20 years the Foundation's initiatives have ranged from school reforms to contemporary art and legal reforms. Today our focus is on strengthening civil society and social cohesion. Our activities are driven by a vision of democracy, civil society, social responsibility and equal opportunities in democratic decision-making processes. We are dedicated to making a lasting contribution towards greater justice, open democracy and respect for diversity. We share experiences with countries in democratic transition and build cross-border partnerships in the European Union and across the globe.
