I HAVE A DREAM
What is your first association when you hear "early marriages", "children give birth to children", "dropping out of school", "illiteracy"? Yes, the Gypsies. Even behind the mask of political correctness to call them "Roma", many people believe that Roma women are guilty for this situation because they "give birth to many children", "get married at an early age" and „they are lazy".
However, the problem is that Roma girls and women spin in an unending circle of socialization, which does not respect them as individuals, as subjects of life plans and human will. Many Roma girls and women are double discriminated against and society remains deaf to their problems, hopes and dreams.
For that "LARGO" Association - Kyustendil begins the implementation of the project "I Have a Dream". The project will implement new methods for empowering Roma women and girls through direct advocacy. "I Have a Dream" is applied through the partnership of the Norwegian advocacy organization KUN, which has tremendous experience in empowering vulnerable social groups and protecting the rights of women and minorities.
Do you want to understand what means "direct participation", what means "visual advocacy", and how can be torn up the unending circle of poverty-illiteracy-unemployment-poverty?
Welcome to the introductory press conference of the project "I Have a Dream", which will be implemented on Monday, October 25, at 10:30 a.m. in the Bulgarian Telegraphic Agency’s press club in Kyustendil, “Targovsta Street“, No 11.
The project "I have a dream" is implemented with the financial support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the Active Citizens Fund of Bulgaria within the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area.
