Why we are involved in SEMPRE Accelerators
Our micro project in SEMPRE Accelerators
Here in Rucava (Latvia) throughout the past years, we - social service providers together with people with disabilities - have co-created a recipe brochure for people with low income that is distributed through EU food boxes. During this process, the participants developed new skills (both in terms of cooking and compiling the brochure) and developed a sense of group identity and belonging. Now, with SEMPRE Accelerators, we want to transfer this approach to other municipalities, provide training courses and form a stable organisational structure for the initiative.
