NELFA is highly interested in capacity building. We want to improve the skills of our staff members and active rainbow family activists from all over Europe. Currently, we have started our third Erasmus+ project “Joining forces for the well-being of rainbow families”. If you are interested to take part, please write to: secretary@nelfa.org. In the recent past, we managend several major projects to strengthen our Network. Find below some examples…
