Aid for 2 Social Institutions - Providing sustainable food input and assistance with minor repairs for micro-farms

The program focused on the creation of reproduction spaces for pigs and chicken and the purchase of animals, which were placed in these spaces. It also included the purchase of the forage for the duration of the project.

The further aim of the project was to enable the Social Institutions personnel to continue the activity after the end of the intervention, so that they could become gradually released from their dependence from humanitarian organisations. KESSA DIMITRA initiated this activity as the first part of a comprehensive approach aiming to expand to all 22 Social Institutions of South-Eastern Serbia, with which the organisation has developed excellent working relations through previous collaborations. It was anticipated that the intervention would expand with funding from other international organisations.
