The target group is women in situation or at risk of social exclusion; particularly women of the Roma minority, whose rate of employment and qualification are very low. The Social Economy and Social Entrepreneurship, in particular the Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISE) have proven to be an important and effective tool for development and social inclusion of disadvantaged groups in a path of C-VET.
The Hungarian National Agency approved the PRESS project’s final report. Moreover, the project received an excellent evaluation (99%) and is now considered as “best practice”.
Recently, "PRESS : PRomotion European Social economy Strategies and social entrepreneurship for inclusion of disavantaged women in labour market" project has been formally recognised as "Good Practice Example" by the European Commission and has been published on the Erasmus+ project results platform.
PRESS aims to promote, compare and disseminate contacts, best practices, methodologies used in EU for the inclusion of disadvantaged people among public and private social organizations of 6 different European countries, and to stimulate the development of Social Economy and Social Entrepreneurship and the importation of the WISE model in Hungary. The goal is the maximum involvement of political and administrative representatives of public entities and civil society organizations, to foster the collaboration which can bring a significant benefit both in terms of KnowHow that in the rational use of public resources.
