While the Visegrad countries of Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia have experienced solid economic growth recently, many people remain unable to secure jobs to support their families, including rural workers, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities.
NESsT’s investments in Visegrad focus on social enterprises that connect people most in need with training and jobs to earn income to support their families.
