Why “League 33”?
Our strategic plan is to contribute to the social and economic development of individuals in southeastern Serbia, and active participation in the reduction of unemployment and poverty in the field of action. The initial premise of our association is the understanding that adult education can compensate for the lack of education in youth. By creating greater social opportunities, as well as a chance for economic independence and growth, we recognize the education of young people and adults as a necessary step towards the social unification of society as a whole.
Through the process of education, we create a chance for more active participation in the society of our citizens, enabling their further development, which strengthens democratic principles. Through learning skills, individuals achieve a chance for a better job, which creates a more inclusive society and strengthens the principles of equality and equity. Our goal is to create sustainable development that will create a healthier society with a strong inclusive policy in the long run.
