The target groups of the project are:
- 1. People with disabilities
- 2. Roma youth from local communities
- 3. All young people in the cross-border region
All of the above groups are at risk of social exclusion and all of the activities of the project target them and their problems. All activities, events, and study visits are adjusted to the needs of these target groups and their interests.
Young people and the people with disabilities are amongst the most marginalized groups in the cross-border region. Their hopelessness generates greater interest in finding employment abroad, increased risky behaviour, and hence also an increased risk for them to become victims of trafficking (especially amongst the Roma) or extreme poverty.
The unemployment amongst the minority communities or other marginalized groups such as people with disabilities, functionally illiterate and low-educated people has reached as much as 90% in the target region. This means that almost 100% of the target beneficiaries of this project are extremely poor, socially excluded and urgently need attention. To this end, this project offers a solution by employing methods through which the target communities can be more independent and live with dignity and self-respect.
