Rise of Roma Women´s Activism in Eastern Slovakia

Project closed.

The project aims to empower and develop the skills of the group of active Roma women who face human rights violations, so that they actively advocate for Roma women´s rights at the local level and increase participation of other Roma women to combat human rights violations in their communities. The project will enable us to cooperate with the group of active Roma women and help them to build up the vibrant women´s “action group” which will carry out its own activities aiming to combat violations of Roma women´s rights at the local level. As well, the project will increase direct participation of Roma women on Poradňa ´s activities and employ a Roma woman to become a full member of our team.

The project is implemented in the period from 1 November 2014 to 31 August 2018 with the financial support of Filia Women`s Foundation.
