Projects & Practice
A very small island in Sweden used EAFRD support to broaden the range of services offered by a village shop by building a café area and a kitchen.
A cooperative association in Sweden received EAFRD support to offer a tailored course aimed at immigrants, building on their experience of rural life and improving their language skills to increase their prospects of finding work.
The initiative reveals how various sources of funding can be used in a synergistic way to capitalise upon local resources and tackle unemployment sustainably.
LEADER funding helped the economic development of a small Polish rural village building on the local community’s rich history.
