Their involvement is conducted through the project of Implementation of women and youth from the countryside in to the rural development and offer of rural tourism; which is supported by the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade and the National Employment Service.

Through this project, the women – potters are skilled in making miniature pottery (pots and plates), which are handy for the painting and the painting also involves some women from Zlakusa. By this, we obtained new tourism products – souvenirs, that are produced in Zlakusa and poses a genuine Zlakusa product that also contributes to the promotion of pottery crafts in the world.
