10 hard-working people from Leskovac and surrounding villages were awarded certificates after the successful finalization of Vocational-Educational Trainings of their choice, this time including: make-up artists, forklift drivers, bookkeeper and masseur.

Gordan Velev, Country Director of ASB office Serbia had awarded the certificates and spoke to the gathered beneficiaries: โ€œThank you all for your participation and perseverance to complete these programs. We tried our best and offered good options for learning, but you put in all of the effort to get these certificates in the endโ€.

โ€œWe are pleased with the great history of cooperation with the City of Leskovac and grateful to the German Development Bank as a donor for the trust shown in the second phase of this project as well. But beyond all, we are happy that we have managed to help so many of hard-working people in the process of social inclusion and easier inclusion in the labor market. ๐„๐ฆ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐ข๐ง๐๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ๐ฌ ๐œ๐š๐ง ๐ž๐ฆ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ ๐จ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ง๐ž๐ญ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ฉ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ญ ๐ž๐ฑ๐ฉ๐š๐ง๐๐ฌ.
