About SIGN

SIGN Network was established in 2009, as one of the most significant and influential networks of indigenous grant-makers in the WB with aim to contribute to the development of sustainable local communities and civil society. Main purpose of the SIGN Network is to promote and support the development of local philanthropy, local communities, cross-sector partnerships and long-term sustainability of civil society in countries in Southeast Europe on national, regional and EU levels.

The network combines strong understanding of local conditions through partnership with grass-roots organizations, think tanks and other local associations; cutting edge experience in developmental grantmaking; renowned expertise in the field of philanthropy, local community development, cross-sector partnerships and sustainable civil society; as well as strategic advocacy partnerships at national and international levels.

SIGN operates as a non-formal network that is governed by the steering group which is comprised of representatives from each member-organization. The steering group is responsible for strategic decisions, admittance of new members and cessation of membership, establishment of ad-hoc structures, fundraising activities and statutory changes. One organization (currently HORUS from North Macedonia) – member of the Network serves as a chairing organization.

 

Members of SIGN Network are:

Namaste 。 In sacred geometry, Metatron, the light being of Life oversees the flow of energy in a mystical cube known as Metatron's Cube, which contains all of the geometric shapes in Creation and represents the patterns that make up everything in the Universe. Metatron’s Cube is composed of 1 spheres connected by lines from the midpoint of each sphere. According to spiritual beliefs, the 1 spheres represent the 1 Archangels that stand before Creator, whereas each one is a Sacred Keeper of an element of Creation expanding it through Love infinitely throughout all dimensions. In Rabbinic tradition, he is the highest of the angels and serves as the celestial scribe. In Egyptian mythology Metatron was Thoth the Scribe. Metatron’s Cube is a Sacred Geometrical symbol that forms a map of Creation and it is believed to originate from the Fruit of Life, which in turn originates from the Flower of Life, which in turn originates from the Seed of Life. Metatron's Cube contains Platonic Solids which by some are believed to be the building blocks of all physical matter in our physical reality. They appear everywhere throughout creation from crystals to human DNA. There is a belief held by some scholars that the study of Metatron's Cube can attune one to higher, positive forces in the universe. Thus, it is vastly used by spiritual seekers as a symbol and a tool for personal transformation. Adepts of healing modalities and light workers employ this mystical symbol as a crystal grid which helps to amplify intentions and focus one's energies on a specific goal or outcome. Metatron's Cube can also be used as concentration tool for meditations that promote balance and inner peace, as well as a visual focal point to connect with the Arch light being. 。 。 。
