05.08.2019Experts from Center Amalipe participated in the making of the first European manifesto of the Roma woman.
On 29th and 30th of July in the heart of Romania – Timisoara, was held the first work meeting from the “Young voices” Project, dedicated to the social inclusion of the Roma women. In the project participate the nongovernmental organizations „Drom Kotar Mastipen“ – Spain, „АID” - Greece, “II Timisoara” - Romania and Center Amalipe – Bulgaria.
During the two days the participants discussed on the important decision to be published the first Manifesto of the Roma woman. The idea for the manifesto was born on the Second International Congress of the Roma women in Barcelona, held in March 2018. Through the Manifesto the Roma women want to be heard, they declare their demand for equality, for access to education, for social inclusion. They want a place for sharing their experience, for encouraging one another, for supporting each other in persuading their dreams. With the Manifesto the Roma women want to secure their identity and to declare it without a doubt. The participants in the meeting were able to make a video with statements from the Manifesto that will be distributed in whole Europe. Silvia Stancheva and Nikolinka
Nikolova helped with the activities.
During the meeting was discussed the sustainability plan so the activities of the project could be implemented even after its end date. Many meetings were planned with women young girls and students from the Roma community so they can be motivated and encouraged for improving their life.
