Summary of project results


Young Roma women have particular difficulties in accessing the labour market and in engaging in civic participation, and this project is intended to improve this access, and to promote social inclusion and gender equality. The beneficiaries will be empowered with skills to achieve these goals, integrated in a mentoring programme. Through skills development meetings, under non-formal education methodologies, knowledge and skills that lead to their personal development and inclusion in the public sphere will be built. The youths will then develop intervention projects, with the support of the project team and the mentors, which may either focus on social intervention in line with the project’s objectives, or on social entrepreneurship. A compilation of activities and employed methods will be published, facilitating dissemination, and seminars will be held, to give the young people and their work visibility in the community and in the media.
