 Summary
Summary of the project The economic situation of inhabitants in municipalities of Nova Varos, Cajetina and Prijepolje is quite low. Large production companies have closed and the number of unemployed persons is large. The situation for women in the rural areas is more difficult; most of them are only household support staff and receive no salaries. Through implementation of this project, women from the rural areas will have the opportunity to secure income themselves and to some extend gain some independence. This will be achieved through the network associations for the designing, production, promotion and distribution of natural textile. Women will have the opportunity to be employed through these associations and through foreseen trainings to acquire new knowledge related to production and promotion of their products. Design Centre and training centers for old craftsmanship will be formed with the aim to preserve old craftsmanship trades and to improve economic situation of women in the rural areas.
Main goal of the project

Improved economic position of women through the strengthened of competiveness of women entrepreneurs in the rural areas of South-Western Serbia

 

Specific objectives  A network formed for the production, promotion and distribution of old craftsmanship products of natural textile.
