In Nis, there is 80% of the Roma population is of working age. As the greatest number of this population engaged in collecting secondary raw materials, LEDIB project representatives shall establish a cooperative and office that will focus on gathering and selling of secondary waste.

According to Osman Balic from the League for the Roma Decade, the signing of an agreement with the adoption of the State strategy for the integration of the Roma is one of the ways that the Roma get out of the vicious circle of poverty in which they are currently.
