The aim of the project is to support local communities, and create common space for refugees and local citizens in areas of high transit migration in Serbia.
The Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation will consolidate knowledge, information and resources in an effort to maximize the synergies for handling pressures at high transit migration spots, with the effort and perspective of the civil society, local community groups and volunteer response. Project will be implemented in three municipalities covering over 200,000 Serbian citizens affected by migration - Presevo, Subotica, and Sid.
The main project objective is to support community-initiated voluntary and civil society initiatives in the amount of $70,000 that will contribute to resolving the burning issues of local population, while creating space for refugees and local people to interact and engage. Various initiatives will be supported in the first half of 2018 in order to change local communities and their environment, including cultural, sport, social and employment issues.
In addition, project will generate a greater level of empathy through active engagement with traditional and social media, organization of round tables and information delivery.
