“Schedule of info sessions for the City of Visoko”

The German non-governmental organization Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V. has commenced the implementation of the project “Inclusion and Economic Empowerment in the Western Balkans 2023/2024” in the area of Visoko Municipality since March 5, 2024. The project is funded by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany through the Stability Pact for Southeast Europe, with co-financing from the Visoko Municipality.

The project will last for 10 months and will support a total of 20 beneficiaries from the area of Visoko Municipality. Potential beneficiaries include all unemployed and/or employed individuals from socially vulnerable categories with viable business ideas for starting or developing independent business activities. The project may support all activities resulting in appropriate monthly income, depending on the available financial resources and market potential of each individual proposal.

Ideas in the fields of tourism and crafts will be given priority. Ideas should include an environmental protection component and be assessed as “green” businesses by Help officials.

Approved assistance will be distributed solely in the form of material and technical resources necessary for the activity, without cash payments. The average amount of individual donation is determined at the equivalent of 2,500 EUR. Each beneficiary will be required to contribute 20% of the total donation amount, register their activity (at least as a small-scale agricultural enterprise), and perform 10 hours of socially beneficial work for the local community.

Previously registered activities up to five years old will also be considered.

All interested parties can obtain detailed information about the project and application forms at one of the presentations which will be held at the following dates and locations:
