Summary of project results

 

The inability of children from Roma settlements to fulfil school requirements and the children’s insufficient academic results often lead to grade retention or redeployment to special schools. These children often finish their education process by completing the compulsory school attendance. The sustainability of the project results is rooted in the project objective: to keep increasing the knowledge, skills, and competencies of the target groups. The objective of the project was to provide children from excluded Roma communities with a better chance to choose their own way of life and future employment through the improvement of their academic achievements. The long-term impact of the project can be mainly seen in the fact that activities in Plavecký Štvrtok started thanks to it, and then continued in unchanged form after the project implementation was finished. At the same time, the organisation’s offer of services has been extended by social counselling for adult clients and a low-threshold program for children and youth. The latter is now organised in the form of a low-threshold club twice a week. The outcome of the project: A pre-school club was opened, and regular tutoring for children and career advising for young people was launched. Families participated in the project activities in order to provide an increased support to education. The planned outcome was fully met. Main outputs: the readiness of 21 children for school attendance was increased; the education results of 89 children were improved; the motivation of 39 pupils to continue their studies at high schools was increased; 64 involved families; training was provided to 53 experts (4 seminars); 6 schools were involved in inclusive education; 47 prospective experts participated in 10 seminars; 4 activities were organised for schools, families and community centres Beneficiaries were involved mainly through their active participation in tutoring, career counselling and inclusive education.
