In the PPP Horehron region were local people trained from the point of view of social work adaptability (IT knowledge, languages, management, …). In the region is high unemployment and threatness group - at risk of social exclusion are especially young people with middle level of graduation. Local products are produced by old-local producers in this region and these traditions are threatened now, because there are not possibilities for skills transmission from old generations to the next generations. Crafts, local products and traditions are a big opportunity for the valorization of the territory and the development of new economic activities, linked to tourism and cultural initiatives.
