The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., in cooperation with the Society for Support of Young Roma successfully applied for tender Volunteering for Inclusion. This tender will partially cover the expenses for two workplaces, by which we want to accelerate intercultural and transgenerational cooperation in Roma community.

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., and the project partner Society for Support of Young Roma have launched a project with the help of which they want to direct Roma people in volunteering and thus affect their work activity. Through the structured voluunteering, representatives of the Roma community will gain new knowledges and skills, which will positively affect several aspects of their lives; i. e. better inclusion in the society and more contact with the majority of population, better self-esteem of included individuals and raising the level of their confidence, raising their employability, independence and making them more competitive in the job market. All of that should come as a result of active participation in the volunteering program.

Program is intended to help raise quality of the alredy existing volunteering programs by including other new partners, which will themselves help with providing the quality content.

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is supported by:
