Projects should be prepared by local groups working in wider local partnerships in communities in Eastern Slovakia. Involvement of employees of USSK or its filial companies in the projects is compulsory, as it is assumed it can lead to their wider engagement in self-help activities as well as strengthen their links with their community and region.
