Employability, employment and income: The Project Consortium members have facilitated access to professional / vocational education, exercised job mediation and advocacy for employment of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians in the public sector, with the aim to provide better access to the labour market, in particular to young people. In this regard, more than 194 job positions for young members of these communities have been mediated with public and private institutions. Parallel to this, 234 young individuals have completed professional training, thereby increasing their employability, and 73 families have profited from a micro-credit and small grants system, which has allowed them to develop their own small business.
