The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., anounces that we have been selected as the contractors for the social activation program. Project Activation for Employment is a half-yearly project, with the activities beginning on 19th June.

Social activation is a pilot project of the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. In the period between 2017 and 2022 it has been and will be financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Social Fund.

The project uses different approaches to encourage and include people who try to integrate themselves to the labor market and solve the social issues. Even though social transfers prevent absolute poverty, they don’t however enable a way out of unemployment.
