Association "Edufons" was established to strengthen the community through education, improving the flow of information, the promotion of democratic citizenship, positive valuation of differences through lifelong education and advocacy. We promote the rights for everyone to education that has a fundamental role in the development of every person and big impact on social and economic development of the community. These are needs to develop our own capacities: introducing innovative ways, tools and working methods in order to offer our adult learners optimal training programs. We consider very important professional development of trainers through the improvement of their core competencies and skills. Adult learners are recognized as passive and hardly involved in the process of continuous learning. We want to help them through additional education to be better positioned in the labor market. The focus is on the offers of educational programs for all ages and different target groups, especially for rural women. Objectives of our project: to strengthen the capacity and attractiveness of the organization so that it is able to offer activities and programs that better meet the needs of individuals and staff to expand their professional competence with the acquisition of the idea of the different education systems and approaches in adult education in the EU.
