The project “To social, through economic security and equality of all!" aims to contribute to improving the socio-economic position of the Roma and Egyptian populations by establishing socially responsible behavior of all relevant actors who create and implement policies to improve, recruit and integrate the RE population in the labor market. In this way, by strengthening the professional and personal competencies of all the mentioned groups, the project will raise awareness of the importance of economic equality for all, with particular emphasis on the importance of gaining economic independence among the RE population, especially women, as a prerequisite for combating numerous social problems, and domestic violence, that is, violence against women.

In addition to discrimination in the field of employment, the RE population faces discrimination in the fields of education, inclusion, health care and culture, and a large, social problem of some of the mentioned population is still domestic violence, ie violence against women.

The most common reasons why, despite all the efforts of the institutions of the system, this problem still persists are insufficient awareness of the possibilities of overcoming this problem, patriarchal lifestyle, as well as feeling of fear and shame, why Roma women and Egyptians in Montenegro suffer and do not report that they are victims of domestic violence.

In many years of work to combat this and many other problems of the RE population, it has been noted that one of the biggest obstacles to combating violence against women is their economic dependence on the male member of the family who is most often the perpetrator.

This is precisely the reason why RE representatives, who are victims or potential victims of domestic violence, will be supported through information workshops and leaflets on the application process at job offices, training programs, and employment opportunities.

Project activities will be implemented in Herceg Novi, Nikšić, Podgorica and Kolašin, and the total requested budget required for the implementation of project activities is € 17,715.50. The project is funded by the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights of Montenegro.
