PROJECT BACKGROUND

When we drafted this project we took into account the following:

  • the rate of illiterate people in vulnerable groups is increasingly in all the Partner countries;
  • the rate of illiterate Roma people is much more than the average of the illiterate people in the Partner countries:
  • till now was not drafted dedicated programs for reducing the illiteracy among people in vulnerable groups, focused on Roma;
  • all the Partners in the project have expertise in education activities for people in vulnerable groups.

As well, we have to mention that:

  • many Roma people are disappointed and they mistrust in the measures taken by the authorities in order to improve their situation;
  • even if some local school institutions tied to organize courses for reducing the illiteracy among Roma, they do not fit the need of these people;
  • we have to take account by the particularities of these social group and to try to attract it to the project activities, even by including some material incentives.
