The eco-socially-motivated project aimed at reducing the effects of the poor economic and social situation of Újpest's (the 4th district of Budapest) disadvantaged social groups by the means of developing their self-care activities. The main tool for this was the establishment of a community workshop and space where for almost half a year a total of nearly 200 carpentry and tailoring classes were held in workshop and course format beside 3 additional creative workshops. The members of the district’s job search club meant a major target group and were reached through the municipality’s family care service. The participation of mothers with small children was encouraged by a game corner and child supervision during the workshops.
