1. “Roma women in Decade”, Curug 
  • CSD: 100.000,00
  • Name of the project: “Roma women in Council for interethnic relations ”
  • Project goal: Local governments in Vojvodina made a Decision to establish Council for interethnic relations. According to this Decision, the members of the Council are named on suggestions of national minority councils. Regarding the fact that all members of national minority council of Vojvodina were resigned from, there is possibility for Roma women and Roma men together with Roma NGOs to suggest one representative from their communities to be a member of the Council. Otherwise, there will be no Roma representatives, especially Roma women, to defend their rights on institutional level. That’s the reason why it was urgent to organize round tables in six towns in Vojvodina, to talk about importance of establishing this Council and importance for Roma women to get into. On the round tables, Roma women from six towns and surroundings were present.
