Throughout our history we have been able to accompany and support many Roma girls and women on their way to overcome the exclusionary barriers they face day to day. The scope of a Roma girl/woman’s dream is undoubtedly the greatest recognition we can have as an entity that strives to better the lives of the Roma.
