Summary of project results


The Roma women's group Manushe has been working since 2000 to strengthen the position of Roma women in society and the community. Now the group will expand its capacity and know-how to the local level. Within 11 months of the project, 160 meetings under the program “Education, Self-confidence, Emancipation” will be organised in 8 cities (Chomutov, Mimoň, Prague 14, Bruntál Turnov, Náchod, Krupka and Ostrava). Meetings will be led by long-time members of Manushe with methodological support provided by the Prague office. At the end of the project, 80 Roma women will have enhanced self-esteem, and will be activated and committed to making changes in the community. They will prepare awareness-raising events on gender equality, increasing awareness in Roma communities on this topic. Interesting human stories and best practices will be presented at the final conference and in the electronic book available at the end of the project at http://www.slovo21.cz.
