Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
The main aim of the project is to raise the level of financial literacy among Roma adults and to be informed about different consumer services. First, by applying a uniform methodology, we researched in all partner countries what the knowledge of the Roma in this field is. We carried out guided interviews with individual Roma, two focus groups of professionals dealing with Roma issues and important representatives of the Roma community. In addition, by studying different literature, we researched how mostly educated Roma successfully manage their family finances. Based on this research we developed an educational programme on how to efficiently manage family finances, be an informed consumer, save money and shop wisely, etc. It is accompanied by learning and teaching resources, adapted to the needs of the Roma minority and focused on gaining practical skills to ensure better quality of life. The programme and learning tools will be tested through pilot actions, improved and published in all the languages of the partners at the end of the project.
