Main Projects / Activities: 

The organization was founded at the end of April 2014 and until now we have applied to the new Erasmus + programme for a combined project consisting of a training course planned to take place in Romania and a final seminar to take place in Sweden. Between these two international activities, the partner organizations coming from Turcia, Romania, Sweden, Ucraine, Moldova, Serbia and Bulgaria will organize several local level awareness raising campaignes on the topic of the project: human trafficking.

For the next Erasmus+ deadline we plan to send a project together with partners from the EuroMed countries: Jordan, Morocco, Egypt, Italy, Finalnd, Romania and Sweden. The project will be on the topic of gender equality.
