Provide Education for Talented Roma Children

by Dive maky, o.z.

Summary

We believe that all children should have access to education, because knowledge gives them power to change their future. That's why we support Roma children coming from very poor social conditions. We want them to know that their life and dreams are as important as others. With your help we can create a new generation of Roma- educated, hardworking, confident and proud. Our know-how is simple- we give them a chance.

Challenge

Most Roma children from Dive Maky come from segregated communities. We support them through scholarships donated from individual donors just like you. These financial resources enable our children to study at schools, work on their talents and through this they are able to leave their communities and eventually live a better life. Throughout the year we organize activities such as workshops and Summer Academy Camp which give them opportunity to gain new skills and motivation.

Solution

Talented Roma children in our program are provided with scholarships that allow them to get suitable education and participate in artistic workshops with professionals who help them to work on their talents. Besides that we want them to grow personally as well. Each child has a mentor who is something like big brother/sister to them. Mentor is constantly in contact with the child, his family, school and if any problem occurs he is there to help and support the child.

Long-Term Impact

Individual impact allows Roma children to reach sustainability in their lifestyle through supporting their specific talents via education, mentoring and additional non-formal activities of Dive maky (Summer Academy Camp or performances). Such independent and motivated alumni of our program then become role models for its peers, inspiration for its family and a good example for society that will potentially end marginalization of Romas in Slovakia.
