  • Improvement of social inclusion of marginalised groups;
  • Housing solutions for refugees, IDPs and returnees provided;
  • Improved quality of life of targeted population;
  • Economic self-reliance of the targeted group will be strengthened;
  • Integration or return of refugees
  • Improvement of living conditions or return of IDPs

The project will have an impact on the wider domestic population and the local community in terms of the provision of a better quality of life. Positive impacts on the budget (through decreased claims for family income support, one-off assistance in cash, etc.) are expected. Generally, the project will contribute to the better exercising of guarantied basic human rights.
