Continuation of activities in East Serbia

Nastavak obukeEast Serbia, May 2009. The project “Employment measures for the rural population in East Serbia” has been continued this year. Adult Education Society has been working with partner organizations from Bor: Association of Young Researchers (MIBOR), Transition centers RTB Bor and has elaborated a very intensive training program, which will be realized on two weekends. The project objectives are as last years: to inform the target groups about the project; qualification through the acquisition of basic skills, and networking of households, which participate in this project. The success of the project is reflected in households and the categorization of the five households from last year. Until the start of the next season the categorization of further ten households can be expected. It was a few days ago that  „The Association of owners and households for the development of tourism in Bor ” was formed, which is made up of about 30 member-households. This association has the aim to strengthen and support the project. In the framework of this project, the particular aim for the project management team and the partner organizations is to intensify the cooperation with local partners. Involved in the project is the Bor community and all local key organizations, such as The Tourist Organization in Bor, The Municipality of Bor Development Association, The Regional Training Center and others. These partnerships have been very valuable in regard of team spirit and cooperation. At the same time, also other core-problems were detected and the educational scope of the services in the community has been expanded. The tourist agency was reorganized so that certain activities and obligations can be performed. For example, some almost forgotten projects which is concerned with the environmentally conscious use of natural resources, came back to the surface. The project “Employment measures for the rural population in East Serbia” has received very positive feedback, as fifteen new households are interested in training this year.
