Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
Our aim is to empower this community and start to changes. We organise community programmes, meeting points; we involved them and the members of our association into the process of planning and implementation. We intend to provide basic services making the quality of life better. Our goal is that most of the Roma community become members, volunteers of the association, and the village recognizes, supports us.

Main expected results are: opened community programmes giving experiences for everybody; civil roundtables for developing the community, thinking, acting together; club for children and youngsters for developing self-activity skills.

The direct target group is Roma people between 18-45 years, the indirect target group means all inhabitants of Szajla. We cooperate with local decision-makers, professionals and (not local) civil organisations.
