Labour Ministry aims to create 6,300 new jobs by spending €19.92 million

Slovakia’s Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Ministry will seek to create about 6,300 temporary and permanent jobs and plans to acquire financing from EU funds, and the European Social Fund in particular, with the EU providing €16.93 million of the overall €19.92 million planned for the projects, the TASR newswire reported. The ministry wants to help the unemployed via four projects. One of these, reconstructing castles, has already been started, providing jobs to around 50 people. Another 500 persons could possibly get work for a period of six months doing renovation projects involving other historical sights. A second project aims to get the unemployed involved in educating children. As many as 2,113 people could be employed as social assistants and as security staff for a period of ten months. "Apart from reducing the unemployment rate, the aim is to... make the education of children from socially-disadvantaged environments more effective," the ministry said in a statement, as quoted by TASR. Another 100 people could be given temporary jobs in small and medium-sized companies.

"The disadvantaged job applicants will acquire working habits there. The companies will be chosen via a call announced by the Economy Ministry," the statement reads.

The fourth project will be aimed at providing children with a family environment instead of placing them in children's homes (orphanages). This project will not provide jobs to the unemployed but around 4,000 employees of the Labour Ministry and children's homes will participate in it.
