Celebrating World Day of Social Justice on 20 February, declared by the United Nations General Assembly as a day dedicated to the fight against poverty, unemployment and equality. Having in mind that the purpose of marking this day is to promote solidarity, equality and equity, will be realized a mapping of the territory of the municipality of Strumica, which would include different target groups of families and individuals (young and adults). The purpose of the mapping is to make an objective analysis by summarizing the results of the target groups in terms of age, gender, and profession (whether they are respondents who are employed, but with very low incomes; whether they are respondents who are unemployed but are active job seekers or they are not included in the labour market at all either as employees or as an active job seeker) and work experience (do the respondents have the qualifications to be included in the labour market in case of unemployed respondents). After the completion of this mapping, within the “ZAEV Social-Humanitarian Program”, the ultimate goal will be the preparation of a Social-Inclusive map which will be a roadmap with the undertaken specific activities (such as assistance in the professional qualification of respondents from the target groups, assistance through a job recommendation to the respondents from the target groups, advisory assistance to the respondents from the target groups). The above-mentioned activities should result in the reduction of poverty among the target groups through their social inclusion in the social processes, with a focus on building a fair and truly humane society.
Celebrating World Humanitarian Day on 19 August, declared by the United Nations General Assembly, designated in memory of the 19 August 2003 bomb attack in Baghdad, Iraq. The celebration of this day will be in honour of all humanitarian workers who lost their lives for humanitarian purposes but also aim to increase the public’s desire to support humanitarian activities. Therefore, it will be marked by a series of activities in the form of donations of humanitarian aid in clothing, water, food and personal hygiene items, as solidarity assistance to the population of Ukraine. In the before-mentioned context, the International Day of Charity on 5 September, declared by the United Nations General Assembly, chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace, celebrated in recognition of her enormous humanitarian work as the most famous missionary in the world.
Celebrating World Children’s Day on 20 November, which is the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, but also the date when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Among other activities, this program will be committed to improving the conditions for the growth and development of children, given the fact that each child’s first years are crucial in building personality. Using an inclusive approach in which children from vulnerable categories will be included, one of the first activities in this program will be the release of the playgrounds for the children in the village of Rich, located near the municipality of Strumica, in the south-eastern part of North Macedonia.
Celebrating International Volunteer Day on 5 December, declared by the United Nations General Assembly to recognize and promote the invaluable impact that volunteer activities have on the community and society. This day will be marked with an activity that will include assistance in the homes (material or/and non-material) of vulnerable categories of citizens, in which anyone who has the opportunity and the will, can have the opportunity to join and be a volunteer. This action aims to raise awareness of the volunteers’ tireless work and their contribution to a better society, inspired only by free will, and not by the desire for material or financial gain. In this context will be marked also the International Human Solidarity Day on 20 December, declared by the United Nations General Assembly, which has identified solidarity as one of the fundamental and universal values on which to establish relationships between people.
These observances will be carried out through the execution of the following initiatives:
