Our programme supports labour market integration and finding employment in the open labour market. Our goal is to help Roma people who have been without legal employment for years or are long-term unemployed and can only make a living from casual work to get into public work schemes, instead of those capable and pressed to advance into the primary labour market.
As a result of BAGázs’s presence, unemployment rates decreased in Bag, most of the people living in the settlement are working, although a lot of them are in the public work scheme.
Our mission is to help talented Roma people with work socialisation to learn a profession and enter the primary labour market. To achieve this, we cooperate with multiple “for profit” companies in a gradual system to have supply match demand while supporting the employers and the employees and providing mentoring, so people from the settlement can succeed in this sector as well. We continuously help the unemployed to develop in order to gain experience in searching jobs and employment, so that they can and may acquire a position in a competitive and secure workplace.
Dány has a higher unemployment rate among people living in settlements than Bag, therefore we mostly work with people in public work schemes who have the opportunity – due to the cooperation of their public work employers – to study also during work time and who can acquire the experience necessary to enter the open labour market, making it possible for people to step into their positions who did not have any connection to the world of employment.
