For this purpose, in 2014 they created a project proposal in which the unemployed members of the association would work on the production of soap. The "Soaps with  dots – social entrepreneurship blind and visually impaired" was approved in late 2015 by the City Office for Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship. Association was offered space in the complex of the former factory Zagrepčanka, whose roof is completely devastated, and they need financial assistance for the reconstruction of the roof.
