  • Sa problemima na ti

    Global economic crisis and transition process have led to high unemployment rate in Serbia, with young people being especially affected.  For the age group 15-24, the unemployment rate is 43.1%. The project “Sa problemima na ti” provides psychological assistance, career guidance and counselling services to young people through individual sessions, counselling via Skype, psychological testing, training and workshops. The project is being implemented by two psychologists/psychotherapists. In order for the project to be available for young people who belong to vulnerable social groups, these services are provided for free for Romany children in transition from primary to secondary school. The aim of the project is the improvement of young people’s mental health, the increase in their employability as well as the social integration of the young people from vulnerable social groups.

  • Mladi za stare

    Young for Old – In three years of work, the team of young people has been built, that team decided that their work will be beneficial for seniors. According to population census 22% of population is older than 65 years and many of them live alone. Instead of them we are waiting in lines, doing payments, buying medications and groceries and regularly visiting them. We agreed that we should say thank you to the elderly because they deserved it. In order to preserve environment and promote sustainable ways of transport, we provide all services by bikes. Sustainability of the project is achieved by providing services to the people younger than 70 from where the highest incomes come from fast food delivery and services of marketing and promotions. Social Impact Award will mean big step to sustainability for our project, possibility of expansion to other cities in Serbia and expansion of services. As citizens of Pirot with use of bicycles we are reducing number of young unemployed people, we are helping elderly, preserving environment and for every 1000 KM passed we are saving 150 euros. Today you don’t have 70, but tomorrow you will have. Vote for us.
