An active citizen - the basis of a functioning society
With the help of this project, we want to increase the participation of Roma in the processes of planning, management, and monitoring of the functioning of the municipality's self-government, which relate to the life and problems of the Roma themselves.
The systematic change will consist in the fact that with the help of good practice (example), organizing and empowering communities, we will establish a platform on the basis of which the Roma will be involved in the processes of planning, management, and monitoring of the functioning of the municipality's self-government, especially in the localities in which they live and which relate to life and the problems themselves.
We will strive to strengthen the Institute of Settlement Committees and help remove obstacles preventing their establishment.
The project is being supported by the Open Society Fund Prague from the Active Citizens Fund. The programme promotes citizens' active participation in the public life and decision making and builds capacities of civil society organizations. The Active Citizens Fund is financed from the EEA and Norway Grants
