The Prešov region our organization People in need – Slovakia is working with children and youth, where are the local problems of racial intolerance and other forms of intolerance. We decided to open this topic among the young, more to discuss it, work with different activities that could better name this problem and improve the situation positively. Through community events we would like to involve the rest of the population and surrounding sites.

The main objective of the project is to strengthen the skills and raise youngsters in selected locations in the theme of racial intolerance and manifestations of intolerance against minorities and otherness.

Project results will be conscious youths, able to respond to stereotypes and discriminatory situations in their communities, and who will continue to spread the ideas of tolerance and combat any manifestations and forms of intolerance.
