As part of the project "Prevention and Elimination of Child Marriage in Serbia", trips were organized for girls from Vranje and Kragujevac

As part of social inclusion activities for Roma girls from Vranje, a trip to the "Mišić" zoo in Dulan, which is 8 km from Vranje, was organized. Eighteen girls from Vranje and the surrounding area, as many as there were on this trip, have not yet had the opportunity to visit the zoo, nor to attend an event organized like this. The girls were delighted with the horses, zebra, monkeys and other animals, and as they said, until now they had not had a similar opportunity to socialize with each other outside of their community and school and that they would like to have more opportunities like this to visit different places around Vranje. After the tour of the zoo, lunch was organized in the restaurant that is part of the zoo. We owe a special thanks to the collaborator Marina Damjanovski and the association Glas Vranje for the realization of this event.
