Advocacy in the field of equal access to education
We lead the litigation in discrimination against Romani children in education and help parents in law enforcement.
We build a healthy and strong community
First, it is an active parent to become a volunteer in our campaigns and eventually an organizer of Roma communities and a leader in their community.
This our story
we have been organizing Roma communities in Ostrava since October 2013 with the main focus on equal access of Romani children to quality education. We use the "Leadership, Organization and Action" methodology from Harvard Kennedy School, USA tailored to the Ostrava context.
Community organization is building a structure based on strengthening the fundamental rights of the community and building leadership skills in communities. These organizers must have close ties with the community and must come from within the community.
We are currently spreading these organizational methods to the surrounding towns of Ostrava.
