ToR and Objectives 

Background

FIQ is starting a new project with the support of GiZ, to combat the informal waste sector in Kosovo, through the provision of services to IWCs’ mainly in the Roma, Egyptian, Ashkali community, in terms of improving their working conditions and increasing their income through their integration into the waste circular economy. As the lack of economic opportunities remains one of the key challenges of this community, they have been often forced to earn their livelihoods with the collection of waste material. In order to address this challenge, the project will seek to strengthen the self-organization of IWCs in social enterprises. It is envisaged that the IWCs will benefit from official registration and membership at the social enterprise. The primary benefits for IWCs to become members of the SE is that they will gain access to processing and transport equipment such as tricycles and small transporters, which they can lease on a daily basis for a viable fee. FIQ firmly believe that social entrepreneurship is one of the key active labour market policies that can be utilized to create sustainable jobs at a local level, and once fully operational and self-sufficient, such social enterprises can have a significant impact in the communities and target groups they serve. Supporting local CSOs, especially those working with vulnerable groups and returnees, in gaining work experience through starting projects and social business is an effective mechanism to help shift their operational mind-set towards efficiency and sustainability. 

As part of the project, Trainings modules to the chosen target group participants, with the aim of building their key skills and competencies for starting and running a social business, including (but not limited to) trainings on skills and competencies that can are also transferable if they wish to pursue a job in the private and/or public sector, such as trainings on Social Entrepreneurship & Business Planning, Sales & Marketing, Finance, Time Management & Productivity, and Job Landing Workshop (Job searching, CV & Interview Prep)
