The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., marked the end of implemenation of the programme Social Activation – For Equality, for Employment, for Roma Women, that was being implemented for three years, with a final event.

In the framework of our cooperation with women from the Roma community, we worked on strengthening the social and functional competences of the participants, supported them in the use of the Slovenian language, worked on getting to know them and integrating them into the local environment, provided them with additional individual support, and focused our work on actively bringing the participants closer to the labour market.

In order to formally conclude the programme, we cordially invite you to the closing event, which will take place on Friday, 30 September 2022 at 12 noon at the Romani kafenava restaurant.

Event programme:

  • Opening address (Štefan Simončič, President of the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent.)
  • Presentation of the challenges we faced in the implementation (Jerica Lorenci, Associate)
  • Cultural programme (programme participants)
  • Romani kafenava – how to move forward? How to prevent the exclusion of Roma women in the field of employment in Maribor.


Social activation programmes are funded by the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities and the European Social Fund.
