The ninth work session of SINO was organised Thursday, april 21 2016, between 08.00-13.00, in Craiova. At the meeting were present the representatives of the communities from LAG Sudolt, beneficiaries of the training courses and members of the project’s team.
The theme approached during this session was “Accessing the financing sources – the resource for reducing the social exclusion of vulnerable groups”.
During the meeting the project’s objectives and the activities implemented until the present moment were described.
The participants were invited to present, according with the specific features of each community, the approach upon vulnerable groups and long term strategies focused on them.
Another subject of the meeting was the presentation, by the Terre des Hommes Switzerland Foundation, of a financing opportunity -small grants which the foundation provides in order to increase the welfare of the children and to promote the social inclusion of vulnerable groups.
The participants were very interested, asked questions regarding the eligibility, the activities calendar, and identfied these grants as one of the solutions which may increase the active involvement of children and parents from vulnerable groups, and may be included in the local plans of reducing the social exclusion.
