Social association Prijateljica was created by the Association of People with Disabilities Prijatelj - Metkovic, with the goal of gathering people with disabilities through self-employment.

Realizing that state institutions will not always be able to assist and co-finance employment of people with disabilities, they started helping ourselves in April 2011.

Such a way of self-organization and gathering helps to realistically look at their remaining opportunities, encourage self-initiative for disabled to articulate their needs themselves.
