DeaDia’s story

The association Dea Dia was founded by three friends driven by an urge to create a society of collaboration and compassion, with full equality of all identities in peace and security.

The founders- Gordana Subotić, Ana Brtka and Eni Gajanova believe in a society where every person enjoys and protects the rights of making choices with a full certainty that they will not disappear the next day.

Our name

Name Dea Dia derives from the name of a goddess in ancient Roman religion, where she was a symbol of growth and prosperity.
