May 24, 2021 - Labour Minister Josip Aladrović presented five agreements in Zadar on Monday worth HRK 11.5 million for the employment of 130 women who have trouble finding a job due to insufficient qualifications and women who care for the elderly in Zadar and Lika-Senj counties. 

The contracts are part of the second stage of the ministry's "Make a Wish" employment program.

"The contracts will enable the employment of 130 hard-to-employ women and women who care for the elderly.

He noted that more than HRK 63 million in the two counties had been invested through 33 agreements to employ more than 500 women who provide care for the elderly.

The Make a Wish employment program is one of the best programs financed by the European Social Fund. Of the initially envisaged HRK 300 million, its value has reached close to HRK 1.8 billion, the minister said.

As part of a project designed to improve the competitiveness and efficiency of women on the labor market, 20 women will be hired in Zadar to provide care for the elderly.
