RAKITA’S SUPPORT TO THE ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH THE PROJECT “HANDICRAFTS”

At the initiative of Rakita, the project “Handicrafts”, aimed at economic empowerment of women in rural areas, will be realized in the next period by stimulating entrepreneurship through the production of handmade high-quality items with the market placement of products. The project will be realized in cooperation with the Associations “Handicrafts Arhaik” and “Association for Development of Municipality of Bor”.

According to plan, the Association “Handicrafts Arhaik” will conduct training in the villages of Brestovac, Slatina and Metovnica from the end of August to November this year. After successful completion of training, participants will receive a certificate and membership in the Association that will enable them to sell items through a dedicated website. Important information is that the Association “Handicrafts Arhaik” is a member of the Ethno Network of Serbia, which has been implementing such projects for several years, as well as the sale of articles via the Internet.

The first training for the production of handicrafts by the technique of embroidery and gold-embroidery will begin in late August in Brestovac and will last a month. Interested female residents of Brestovac will be able to find out more about the Project at a presentation that will be held on August 9 at 7 PM, in the premises of the local community in this village.
