LIST OF ISSUES & OUR APPROACH
The Roma due to their social status in Europe are forbidden from receiving the same benefits in life as other minority and non minority groups. Which means they are not provided w a level of education as others and without education one is unable to gain employment because they do not have a skill set. To counter this the World Roma Federation has developed an educational platform for implementation that will assist in the process of transitioning the Roma into the workforce. By obtaining a skill set the Roma will be able to sustain and care for themselves.
Roma Civic & Cultural Centers
The one thing that is prevalent about the Romani people is that very little is known about them, and what is, isn't positive. To assist in the inclusion process our organization has developed plans to educate the public through the construction of the Roma Civic & Cultural Centers.
Roma Housing Communities
During the Roma Congress held in June of 2017, it became unanimously understood that the Roma people need a clean and safe place to live. Our organization presented our plans for the construction of the Roma Housing Communities, which is set to begin construction in 2021
The Roma are one of the most destitute and impoverished people in the world. Their children are forced to live in filth and squalor. They need food and nourishment. It was estimated last year that nearly 3 in 5 Roma children go to bed hungry. The Roma are forced to rummage through trash in order to find food to eat, no child should live like this! As a society we need to do more.
We are currently distributing food when and where we are able to. We are also working on developing an agricultural program to help us with food banks and distribution.
There are over 60 thousand Roma living in eastern and Western Europe without proper healthcare. Most of them have never had a wellness visit or it has been many years since they received medical attention. We plan on deploying 1 or 2 Mobile Wellness Centers into Roma communities.
Temporary Housing Program
Our organization is set to begin the construction of the Roma colony in 2021 but the Roma people need viable living quarters until the project is complete.
We have begun collecting donations for the program and hope to be able to provide sufficient living conditions for as many people as we can. Donations would be greatly appreciated.
