Project stories, news and features
In Romania, a project funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the Romanian ‘Research Cooperation’ programme, aims to raise awareness of cultural identities by documenting the oral history of Roma.
“For us, the need for a project like this is obvious. Blind children who are placed in special educational institutions are separated from other children – They need to have the opportunity to interact with their sighted peers.”
Supported through the Norway Grants, two new community centres in Iasi and Ploiesti in Romania work to provide vulnerable families with better access to basic services in education, health and social protection, including an after-school programme.
