Amount of support 19,999 €

The youth living in Roma settlements often have integration and self-assessment problems. They do not believe that they can have a successful life and that they can make a difference in the life of their community. Without effective help, this negative perspective will turn into reality, and they will become isolated. However, if they receive support in order to appreciate their own values, they recognize new alternatives to shape their own lives as well as that of the community. The goal of the project is to create positive contemporary role models out of the 26 youth living in 5 Roma settlements through trainings, and thus improve the confidence of the Roma youth, their capacity to advocate for themselves and their chances for equal treatment. In the long term, the goal is to build a peer self-help network, to spread peaceful handling of conflicts, and to improve the recognition and integration of the Roma people. In the framework of the initiative, a group of young trainers (6 young Roma from the Roma settlements) will take part in a training that empowers them to make their compatriots more active. Through these activities, 20 young Roma from the Roma settlements will plan and execute two volunteer actions around a goal defined by themselves, with the involvement of a further 100-150 persons. Since the details of these actions will be planned by the youth themselves, they will own the methods and results of the projects too. Through this their self-assessment and responsibility will be strengthened, and their successes can be shown to the mainstream society.
