Furthermore, the program enables the participants to introduce with the local ethnic, religious, and mentality characteristics which will result in better understanding, and dropping the eventual prejudices. Visits to local social  entrepreneurship organizations, and exchange of the experiences with their experts are planned as a practical dimension of the program.
