Romania & the Balkans
More than a third of Romanians are at risk of poverty and social exclusion, and unemployment remains high in the Western Balkans, especially among women and youth.
NESsT’s investments in Romania and the Balkans focus on social enterprises that create jobs for those most in need, including rural populations, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities and young people who face higher unemployment rates than in many other countries in Europe.
