Family stability

Thousands of families living in Slovakia have no choice and live in shacks, built mostly from trash in illegal colonies with little or no access to water and electricity. These families usually have more members and they live in life-threating situations with nearly no possibilities to break cycle of generational poverty.

ETP Slovakia tries to help those who seek help – first with housing, then with education and job support.

Usually, we invite them to join our micro-loan program and when they show perseverance and will to change their situation, we teach them how to build or reconstruct their new house.

Since having a great success with this social inovation in Rankovce, we decided to start a new chapter in Luník IX in Košice. Currently, several families are involved in Savings program and first steps in having everything ready for construction of houses were already taken.
