The recently launched SERCo project aims to address socioeconomic exclusion of Roma communities through fostering social entrepreneurship. At the moment, six countries are involved: Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Belgium and Spain. The project involves the creation of a ‘Network for Roma Social Economy’, aiming to increase awareness among all Roma communities and professional groups on the potential of social entrepreneurship, and bringing together individuals and organisations operating in different countries.
Joining the virtual Network is free and yields a number of benefits, including direct access to SERCo project outputs, opportunities for networking and interaction with the project target groups and with other organisations and stakeholders who participate in the SERCo Network, and opportunities to exchange good practices which may be used to develop new project ideas and to improve future projects in related fields.
