IRL posjeta konjickom klubu

On Tuesday, 22 November 2015, in cooperation with NGO HELP, NGO Juventas organized a visit for children from Konik Camp I and II to the Special Police Unit, or the Police Team on horses.

In the past two years, NGO Juventas implemented a number of activities for children from refugee Camp Konik I and II as an integral part of the organization's work. Activities are being carried out with children, with the aim of achieving a successful social integration of Roma and Egyptians in Montenegro. Many activities have been carried out, including visits to the institutions in Podgorica. We recognized the Police as one of those institutions of great importance and we wanted the children and young people to get acquainted with the way in which this it operates. In addition, we consider that this type of socializing, which is both recreational and educational, will be significant for better social integration of children.

The visit held on the grounds of the Equestrian Club “Vranac” in Gornja Gorica in Podgorica was attended by 49 children and young people from Camp Konik I and II. They had the opportunity to attend an interesting and educational presentation of the activities carried out by the Special Police Unit, when it comes to a police team on horses and a team that trains dogs for the police.

On this occasion, we would like to thank the Special Police Unit for positivelyresponding to our request  and recognizing the significance of this kind of activity.

We would like to note that since 2012, NGO Juventas has been a partner in the project entitled “Assistance Program for the Integration and Return of RAE and other I/DPs living in the Konik neighborhood” funded by the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro with the assistance of the Government of Montenegro. The main objective of the project is to contribute to the implementation of the Strategy for the Permanent Resolution of Displaced Persons (IDPs) and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Montenegro with a special focus on the area of Konik.
