Opis projektuWALK are based in Walkinstown a small town 6 kilometres from the centre of Dublin City in Ireland. Walkinstown has a population of just over 6000 people. It has more disabled and unemployed people than the national average. It also has a lesser rate of educational achievement than the national average. We are looking to twin with a town of similiar size in Europe who are committed to supporting people to be active citizens. We are espacially interested in communities who have set up social enterprises to provide training and employment opportunities for their communities. To share experiences in creating opportunities in disadvantaged communities for people to access training, employment and to become active citizens.
