Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

According to the Atlas of Marginalized Rural Areas in Romania, several villages in Galati County, in the territory of Tecuci, are strongly affected by the severe marginalization of certain categories of the population. To fight against the high risk of poverty and exclusion, the GAL Tecuci association has set up a social center project.

The audiences concerned are the poor or in a situation of exclusion, the unemployed or inactive, minorities (Roma, the elderly, the suffering ...)

Actions implemented

Project implemented by GAL TECUCI with the support of two partners: the SEMNAL Foundation (component fighting discrimination and promoting multiculturalism) and the development association "EQ" (component professional integration).

This project provides an example of good practices in the field of Roma integration thanks to the LEADER approach: involvement of Roma in the design and implementation of activities, sensitization of political decision-makers and local actors on economic dimension of Roma integration and identification of solutions to improve the standard of living of these communities in the long term.
