PROGRAMS

Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians are often victims of racial and social discrimination without equal access to education, employment, housing and other services. Our projects target specifically those challenges.

Education

The intervention aims to reduce the educational achievement gap through the provision of after-school support, scholarships, mentoring and tutoring and with inclusion of parents in education of their children. Project also aims to institutionalize the good models of intervention

Housing

The intervention aims to improve the living conditions and living standards by ensuring access to water and sanitation and access to functional bathroom with hot and running water through a dweller driven house up-grading model of approach.

Employment

Through vocational and professional education, the intervention aims to build capacities of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians so they can be more competitive in the labor market. In addition, it also aims to reaching equal access to employment opportunities

Human Rights

The intervention aims to ensure that Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians are fully aware of their rights and opportunities and make use of those and that the institutions have installed affirmative actions in order to overcome the poor socio-economic situation of these communities
