Projects

From practically our beginnings we participate in projects of competitive European competitions, among others, to contribute in overcoming the triple exclusion that the Roma woman suffers.

Some of the topics that our projects explore are: promotion of the education of Roma women, validation of formal and non-formal competencies to promote their social and labor inclusion, or the promotion of Educational Actions for Success to overcome educational barriers for the Roma population of all ages.

The work carried out in some of the European projects we have coordinated has been recognized by the European Commission through different awards such as Gold Award Grundtvig, Succes Story or Good Practice Example.
