• Together Against Poverty

  • 1

The main goal of the project is poverty prevention through the development and implementation of educational tools that are suitable for two target groups of the project

those most vulnerable to poverty and social exclusion (i.e. unemployed people, people with low skills or little education, single-parent families or families with many children and people with low wage)

the politicians and decision-makers in the field of social policy

The project is the result of the diagnosed gap between the real needs of people from both target groups. This gap results from misunderstanding the problem of the risk of poverty and social exclusion and inadequate support.

The European Social Charter is a Council of Europe treaty signed in Turin on 18 October 1961, which safeguards day-to-day freedoms and fundamental rights: housing, health, education, employment, legal and social protection, freedom of movement for individuals, non-discrimination. The substance of the Charter was supplemented by a revised version in 1996.


Article 30

The right to protection against poverty and social exclusion.

  • to take measures within the framework of an overall and co-ordinated approach to

  • promote the effective access of persons who live or risk living in a situation of social exclusion or poverty, as well as their families, to, in particular, employment, housing, training, education, culture and social and medical assistance; to review these measures with a view to their adaptation if necessary.
