What we do

Strengthening social inclusion and social cohesion

EU strives for social inclusion of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups through the improved access to employment, offering equal opportunities to both men and women.

EU PRO contributes to this goal through financing individual projects that contribute to social inclusion and cohesion in Serbia but also through supporting local self-governments to develop local social infrastructure and improve access to basic services for its citizens.

During May and June 2018, a public call for proposals for local infrastructure projects worth 4.5 million Euros financed by the European Union (EU) was conducted by the Programme. In September 2018, the Programme Steering Committee approved 37 projects[1] that aim to improve conditions in sports and cultural facilities, schools and kindergartens, health and social care institutions, while some will significantly improve communal infrastructure. Details of the public call, the selection process and the selected projects can be found here.
