Hintergrundinformation


Background:

The approach of promoting social enterprises departs from the model employed in the context of the ADA funded “Women Economic Empowerment for Roma Women in Bosnia & Herzegovina” project implemented from 2012 to 2014 (8108-03/2012) and “Empowerment of Women Vulnerable to Violence” from 2014 to 2017 (8108-03/2014). The NGOs are regarded as hubs that deliver individual women “social grants”, and through this process they gain additional capacity on providing assistance to them, they acquire additional knowledge about the local markets and assist the individual producers to gain better market access.


ADC Funding 50% of the total project Costs.
