spot_img

The overall objective (impact) of this project is to improve the socio-economic situation and empower disadvantaged population groups in the Upper Drina Region (UDR) of Eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina. The intended impact of the project will manifest in more sustainable livelihoods, enabling the target groups to cover their household basic needs, and in changed social relationships, stemming from increased capabilities of disadvantaged groups to engage in community decision-making and improved collaboration mechanisms within the community. 

Complementary to existing employment schemes, SELLS aims to further shape the economic development dimension by promoting small businesses, self-employment, and employment in existing companies. In line with CACH’s overarching goal and mandate to “eradicate poverty worldwide,” the project focuses particularly on vulnerable groups such as people living in isolated areas, youth, elderly, low-qualified individuals, and women heading households. Through sustainable income sources, SELLS aims to enhance their economic development and social inclusion.
