Remarks: The project suffered from serious delays, especially for establishing the centre for people with disabilities, since the donor of the premises (an individual) had alleged links with "FETO". The premises were then transferred to other owners. The project team identified alternative means to achieve the project's objectives, such as by providing the trainings in hotels at downtown. The latest state of play and ownership by the municipality may be discussed with the mayor.
