The partners of the project are the BBSK Employment Agency, n. o., Slovak National Center for Human Rights and Mangfold i Arbeidslivet (Norway). The goal of the project is to increase awareness and better use of DVO in the employment of Roma men and women, especially from marginalized communities.

The second day of the training focused on financial literacy and employment in the context of managing finances.
