Summary of the project

Official statistical data on the position of the Roma shows that their education level is significantly lower than average, thus influencing their difficult position in the labor market. Lack of employment is one of the main reasons for poverty among the Roma. Due to poverty, lack of basic knowledge and possibility of continual education or as a result of discrimination, the Roma are further away from employment opportunity, realization of income and education, as well as from inclusion and participation in social networks and activities in the community. The overall objective of the action is to improve social-economic development and social inclusion of Roma community in Vojvodina through the trainings in 20 municipality, trainings for specific skills according to the assessed demands from minimum 5 employers in Srem and support to the Roma for the PSfLEGEs Call for Proposals on special subsidies for employment and self-employment.
