Projects and documents

The work of the Association, since its foundation, depends on available tenders for the implementation of planned activities. As the main item, which is an employee who works on an employment contract, we have achieved this for the fourth time through three-year programs of the Ministry of Labour. The implementation of professional activities in the sense of the engagement of experts on the Contract for the work, is partially realized through the same ministry with co-financing from our partner, the Municipality of Vela Luka.
