Over the next 12 months, Help will implement a new project to support children and families at risk of separation, funded by the EU through the Montenegro-EU Program for Employment, Education, and Social Welfare.
The enhancement of socio-economic inclusion for vulnerable groups will be carried out in accordance with an innovative method – individualized tailored made assistance.
Dijana Anđelić, the Director of Help Montenegro, stated during the signing of the contract that this is another program that continues Help’s longstanding work with the most vulnerable communities and groups in Montenegro, with the aim of improving their socio-economic status and providing protection for the most sensitive groups.
According to Anđelić, this project will place special emphasis on supporting children at risk of separation from their families, which we have identified as a specific need in our previous work with vulnerable citizen groups.
The support for families and children at risk will be carried out in the municipalities of Berane, Bijelo Polje, Nikšić, and Podgorica over the next 12 months, in collaboration with social welfare centers, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, as well as other relevant institutions.
Help’s partner in the project is the NGO Family Center Kotor.
During this period, support is planned to be provided for around 50 families at risk in the mentioned four municipalities.
