At the beginning of this year, within the SEED Step III project eight entrepreneurs from Apatin, Kula and Vladicin Han received grants for the development of their production businesses. In addition to granted greenhouses, irrigation systems, machinery and other equipment, they will also receive training in the areas relevant to the development of their business.

The Call for grants was opened at the end of 2021 in the municipalities of Apatin, Kula, Vladicin Han and Surdulica, with the aim of supporting the empowerment and self-employment of women and youth, as well as environmental protection.

The SEED Step III project is a regional project to support education and employment. It is implemented by Volkshilfe Solidaritaet (Austria) and its implementing partners: TARA International Consulting as a regional partner and the Novi Sad Humanitarian Center and Syri and Vizionit as local partners. The program is funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and Volkshilfe Solidaritaet.
