Roma Inclusion Activity

Partners: REDI, Romaversitas, Romano Avazi

Supported by:

USAID

Location:

North Macedonia with target of 20 municipalities

Implementation period:

January 11, 2021 to January 10, 2024

Short description:

The aim of the Roma Inclusion Activity is to empower Roma community members and civil society organizations (CSOs) to take leadership roles in the development and implementation of national strategies and policies pertaining to Roma inclusion, and to hold government institutions accountable for addressing Roma issues and needs. Through this project we will promote actions to address the human rights issues that Roma communities, themselves, have identified as priorities. We will support public education activities that raise Roma awareness of their human rights and the mechanisms to address rights violations.

Through this project, we aim to diminish stereotypes and prejudices against Roma people by reducing their vulnerability to economic destitution and lessening their dependence on public assistance. We will support activities to increase the general public’s awareness of Roma needs and the Roma community’s potential to contribute to society. Through this activity, we will further partner with Roma communities from 20 municipalities, CSOs, relevant government institutions, and other local

counterparts. Guided by the local ownership principle, we will fully rely on local capacities to carry out project activities. Community Hubs in 20 municipalities will ensure Roma participation in policy decisions at the local level, and will provide legal, health, psychosocial, employment and other types of counselling and assistance to the Roma population.
