Project description

The project aims to provide services in the field of personal development and employment of women from marginalized Roma communities and to strengthen the professional capacities of organizations working in the field of social inclusion. The main goals of the project are to enable women from selected marginalized Roma communities to gain a living, financial independence, and stability, build self-confidence and gain information and skills that will enable them to make informed decisions and take responsibility for their lives. The project also encourages them to become agents of change in their communities - to act as a positive role model for other women. The program also aims to contribute to the elimination of widespread harmful stereotypes about Romani women, especially by employers, and the resulting cross-cutting discrimination that Romani women face in the labour market.
