Project Implemented by Agenția "Împreună" (The "Together" Agency)
Together with its partners: The Romano-Kher National Roma Culture Center, The Roma Amare Rromentza Center Association, The Marginalized Communities Association Botoșani, The Făgăraș Roma Association, The DANROM Făurei Association, The Community Development Agency in Buzău, and the Ursari Roma Association from Dagâța, during the period of 01.01.2021-31.12.2022.
The "We can do more together!("Putem mai mult împreună!") project benefits from a grant of €897,454 from Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway through EEA Grants under the Local Development Program.
The project aims to support the empowerment of 2,200 Roma at the national level, using a "bottom-up" approach in which Roma citizens are at the center, learning to actively contribute to solving community problems and making their voices heard.
