Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
The project’s main aim is to promote the acquisition of key competences in Roma community to widen the access to LLP and VET in order to improve their social and labour inclusion. Accessing this education through a near approach (their children’s school), we can achieve real change, getting the Roma to access adult education.
The project’s aim is to widen the access of Roma community to LLP, VET and employment through the acquisition of key competences and, at the same time, to impact on Roma children's academic success:
• to improve the skills of Roma families, creating adult learning spaces in primary school facilities,
• to encourage the non-formal and informal learning validation of the Roma to facilitate their access to LLP, VET and employment,
• to work against school failure and early school leavers in the Roma community, bringing primary schools and Roma families closer to each other and promoting the schoool participation of families and the whole community,
• to create the references of the success of family education and Roma school participation for other countries.

Our objectives are:
• Encouraging and facilitating equal access of Roma women and girls in all areas: education, social and labour.
• Overcoming the triple exclusion that Roma women suffer: for being women, for being the Roma and for having low academic education.
• Working to achieve that the voice of the Roma women is heard and disseminated within their community and in the society as a whole.
