Together - promoting children’s rights in the Roma community Kirtimai

Organization: Lithuanian Children's Fund
Project: Together - promoting children’s rights in the Roma community Kirtimai
Location: Vilnius, Lithuania
Target Group: Families at risk

The project is working with children who are living in the segregated Roma settlement of Kirtimai. Through after-school activities - including handicraft, children’s rights courses and social skills training - the children are encouraged to attend school more regularly, become part of the school community, and to help break the stigma surrounding Roma people.
