The Network of Organizations for Children of Serbia (MODS) in cooperation with 10 organisations (Citizens Association "Parent" Zemun Belgrade, Sombor Educative Centre, Indjija Children’s Friends, NGO "Duga" Ada, Centre for Creative Development Knjazevac, "Denizen" Svrljig, "Nexus-Vranje" Vranje, "Our Dreams" Valjevo, "Zlatibor Circle" Cajetina, The Centre for Children’s Rights Kraljevo), all of them MODS members, carried out the research "Resource mapping for social inclusion in 10 cities/municipalities in Serbia" as a part of the regional project Child Protection Hub for South East Europe.
The project is being co-funded by the Austrian Development Agency, the European Union, Oak Foundation, and Terre des Hommes.
One of the main objectives was to develop a methodology which will be used to map resources in a local community with accompanying instruments that will enable each local community to identify and, therefore, use more efficiently resources which contribute to the social inclusion of children and their parents. The existence of resources for 4 areas was examined: social protection, health, education and leisure.
Within the project a questionnaire containing the checklist for the assessment and self-assessment of resources for social inclusion in local communities was developed, a focus group guide was prepared and training for researchers held.
