Roma Women's Empowerment
Sponsoring Agency: Church World Service Serbia
Purpose: This educational and vocational training program for vulnerable Roma women in Serbia is designed to increase the rate of Roma women's literacy by offering educational opportunities (literacy skills and primary school education) and a series of vocational trainings tailored to the needs of Roma women to empower them to effectively seek employment. There are higher illiteracy rates among Roma women than men. There are few expectations for girls to be educated. Leaving school early, marriage in puberty and giving birth early in life all present unique risk factors for Roma Women.
