What is SENTINEL about?
From the 1st of June 2017 the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta is cooperating with 9 Central European partner organizations for a 3 year period to implement a transnational project aimed at developing and testing tools and methods for helping social enterprises.
Demographic changes have started in recent years, increasing social segregation and disintegration, especially in rural areas, represent serious economic challenges for the countries of the Central European region. In these regions social enterprises, if they are helped by a supportive environment, can be real drivers of social inclusion and work integration. Sentinel can help here, first of all, as a guardian or a mentor to encourage these social enterprises, which in many Central European disadvantaged regions provide almost the only job opportunity for local people.The main goal of the project is to reduce regional inequalities in the participating countries and to strengthen social enterprises.
On the 27th of November, the Transnational Social Enterprise Advocacy Network (SETAN) has been established during the 5th SENTINEL project meeting in Maribor. In the frame of the Network, ten partners from six CE countries committed to implementing activities that aim at supporting and developing social enterprises as a boost to revitalise local development in marginal areas.

On 27-28 November 2019 SENTINEL partners have met for the 5th time to discuss project progress and plan the last six month of the initiative. PRIZMA Foundation, with its seat in Maribor (Slovenia), hosted the 2-day event.
