The Association is a provider of social services, with a Residential Center for young people working in the social enterprise of insertion of the Association. The association also carries out economic activity that involves the collection, reconditioning, sale and delivery of second-hand items: furniture, crockery, toys, etc. through two stores in Satu Mare, and recently began to produce bags from used materials.
Dalma is a graduate of human resources studies, and is currently one of the youth workers at the Emmaus Satu Mare Solidarity Association and helps us to develop the case study by gathering information from his colleagues.
“I am just happy to be part of these interviews with my colleagues. They are excited about participating in these case studies, have been open-ended and have answered all questions openly. We all enjoyed a more formal conversation about the job we all share and found out more about the association and each member.
