Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
Told - where the project is taking place - is one of the least developed villages in Hungary. The people here, regardless they are Roma or not, have hardly any opportunity to find a job, or become successful citizens. They need to become the members of a community, which starts to do something to develop their life. The Real Pearl Foundation have been working with them for some years in order to empower them in the different fields of life. In the local community the women have key role in the surging community. They organize events and excursions and they communicate about their life and points of views through the channels of the citizen's media. They can prove themselves their family and the wider society, that their activity can shape our future.

Results of the project
The project wants to help them to be more conscious and effective in their life. They ensure trainings and community events, which focus on main issues of the lives of these women: household, economic planning, domestic violence, handling of conflicts and conscious family planning. During the project 30 Roma and non Roma women's skills, self-conscious and their community is developed.
