Integration of Roma Women and Other Marginalized Female Groups in “New Normal” on the Labor Market – New Employment Perspectives (II)

December 2020 – November 2022 (project extension)

Recognizing the activities carried out since December 2020, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has extended the project “Integration of Roma Women and Other Marginalized Female Groups in “New Normal” on the Labor Market – New Employment Perspectives”, implemented by ABW, for the next 12 months: from 01.12.2021 to 30.11.2022.

PROJECT AIM:

The aim of the project is to improve the earning opportunities of Roma women and local marginalized groups of women, through vocational trainings.

Online trainings will include 270 women from all over Serbia, while offline trainings will be organized in four cities with the largest number of participants, or in places where participants have the greatest potential for the self-employment.

In the following period of the project, four trainings are planned:

  1. Catering, preparation of cakes and cake-decoration

Training: 4 days online, through the ZOOM platform and 4 days per 4 places, offline. The training begins with a theoretical introduction about the working space and kitchen tools, HACCP requirements etc. Participants are provided with consumables for work.

  1. Website development and design with the basics of programming

Training: 12 days consist of 2 modules, completely online, via the ZOOM platform. The first module introduces participants to the “WordPress” platform as the most editable basis that requires only a basic knowledge of working on computers and the Internet. The second module is to learn participants about the basics of HTML and CSS programming, which improves the participant possibilities of creating own website.

  1. Abdominal and foot reflexology (AMPUKU technique)

Training: 4 days online, through the ZOOM platform and 4 days per 4 places, offline. The training begins with a theoretical introduction to the physiology and anatomy of the abdomen and feet and continues with the practical technique.

  1. Internet tools

Training: 4 days online, through the ZOOM platform and 4 days per 4 places, offline. The training provides information on the use of social networks, opportunities, tools and websites that can help in employment.

After each training, participants have a two-months mentoring period, to deepen their knowledge and issues not covered by online and offline (direct) training.
