Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
The Roma youth living in deep poverty can rarely make steps to strengthen their community and advocate for their interests. The members of the Jewish and Roma community, the organisations dealing with youth and community development have an important role in the development. These people also contribute to the establishment of a youth organisation by the end of the project by sharing their own examples and methods. For this purpose, the Sajókaza youth will participate in the organisation and realization of several community programs and a summer camp. The knowledge and community experiences gained from these activities will be an important basis for their independent initiatives later.

Results of the project
The project is organizing group sessions on identity, communication, community and organisation development to the 9-10 grade students in the Sajókaza Ámbédkar school.
