Organization: IQ Roma servis, z.s.

The main findings we reached during last project period is thatRoma parents want quality education for their children and are not satisfied with the quality offered to them by segregated schools.Our everyday experiences with Roma parents mirror findings of several researches (Gabal 2006, Gruberová 2009 etc.).Those parents are prepared to strengthen their voice in calling for changes in school system which will allow for better quality and non-segregated education for their children. This project focuses on the first milestone in the access to better education – on pre-school education. There are three main axes of the project: 1. Empowerment of Roma and other parents in the field of education; 2. Advocacy activities aiming to systemic change of educational system; 3. Individual support of Roma parent; Focusing on those three axes, we will:
1)increase the number of Roma children successfully enrolled in inclusive pre-school education
2)create a group of Roma parents who will be publicly active and advocating on the local as well national level for better education for their children,
3)provide individual support for parents
