In relation to the Roma women we are facing several paradoxes in Slovakia.Female members of marginalized Roma communities are standing against multiple marginalization, feeling disadvantage in social and private life; but often women are the bearers of social change in Roma communities.In particular, at the lowest level, in perspective of social and community life women are involved in organizing recreational activities for children,social counselling and community activities.The project aims to promote civic participation and activism of local Roma women through non-formal education, community plans development, support activities directly in disadvantaged areas through promoting political participation and the formation of local action groups.The specific objective of the project is public senzitisation in relation to the Roma communities,with emphasis on Roma women, promotion of good practice and promoting public debate on this issue.The direct target group is 16 women from 8sites.
