The Tailors of Future

Employment opportunities are limited for Roma in Bulgaria’s job market without proper education and the support of social workers. Because of the few projects available, migration to other European countries has increased. Our tailoring workshop intends to link education with practical work experience guiding women towards the job market with additional counselling and social care. Past experiences have shown that the integration of young Roma often failed to succeed without a proper relationship with the employer and the parents of the adolescent. The social enterprise shall soon be independent from donations and European funds by starting the production and using the profits to reinvest in the enterprise.
