In Hungary just few Roma NGO are operating, thus the advocacy power of Roma civil society is weak. Due to their vulnerable situation Roma people are often victims of the increasing extremity, hate speech and atrocities. There is a need for cooperation between the Roma NGOs, but they cannot realize it in an institutionalized form. The objective is to increase the defense of Roma society against extremities. The project aims to support Roma civic organizations by transferring knowledge about sustainability. Organizations will be able to maintain themselves and realize a cooperative network with an active community. They will be able to share their experience, support each other and continuously learn. They will establish a Regional Coordinating Office and an informative portal, plan the steps of development, hold trainings, workshops and conferences thus their network will be up-to-date, they will be able to apply tenders and implement projects. The project involves about 178 Roma communities and approx. 30 organizations in Western Transdanubia.
