The 'Malomkert'

Malomkert is functioning due to the social enterprise called „Holnap Egyesület” (“Tomorrow Association”), which together with other civil organizations located in five Counties from Romania were the beneficiaries of financial support from the European Union through the RESORT Program – The System of Social Enterprises from the Region, based on traditions. Due to the project a rustic style tourist center is functioning, which is also very modern.
The tourist center functions as a social enterprise, offers various services, but in the same time tries through its activities to find solution for numerous social problems. Among the major objectives there are, for example: development of sustainability, keeping the traditions and values, environmental protection, growing the number of occupations and the quality improvement of the social assistance. Today, the association hired four unprivileged persons.

The scope of the association is that in Malomkert new workplaces to be established, to save and transmit local values, to gain profit and to invest that profit within the social enterprises.
