Promoting the integration of Roma women

 

Roma communities are considered as one of the most socially vulnerable groups at EU wide level, suffering from multiple marginalization risks and being discriminated against by the general public. Roma women usually suffer from what in academic bibliography is called double discrimination: because of their cultural heritage and because they are women. The proposed project (PROMA) focuses on the adult education stream by aiming to foster the integration of Roma women in their local communities through education in the form of practical local programmes, which is the main objective of the project. 

Objectives of the project

  • O1: Utilizing the competitive advantages and social promoting vehicles of the local context in all 4 implementing countries; 
  • O2: Building the capacities of formal & non formal educators of Roma women; 
  • O3: Design & implementation of local pilot programmes aiming at social inclusion of Roma women through education jointly by educators and Roma women.
