Vaslui and Iasi, partners for inclusion

CONFERENCE… The first part of the project “Partnership for inclusion!” has ended. Until now, 425 young people with ages between 16 and 29 years benefited of psycho-social assistance services through the programs developed by the 7NGO partners. The services consisted of psycho-social support for young people with behaviour disorders, addictions and chronical diseases, professional counselling, psycho-social assistance for preventing and fighting against abuse, for developing parental abilities to young people and for developing life skills, and also mediation on the labour market.
