Stake: Coordinating entity

Budget: 31,120.00€

Description: 

It is known that the Roma people suffer enormous discrimination in the educational field, of the almost one million Roma men and women estimated to live in Spain (Ministry of Health. Social Services and Equality, 2012), only 1% have managed to complete university studies (Ministry of Health. Social Policy and Equality, 2011), while almost 35% of the rest of the population has higher education (INE, 2017). This huge educational gap is also observed during compulsory education. Only 30% of Roma students graduate from secondary education, while 60% of non-Roma students successfully complete this stage (Ministry of Health. Social Policy and Equality, 2011; Ministry of Health. Social Services and Equality, 2016) . These data make clear the need for the project to alleviate this situation of inequality experienced by the gypsy people.

 

Many of the beneficiaries of this project will be people who are in post-compulsory training processes, many of whom have not studied for many years and also do not have an academic family tradition, which has made it difficult for them and makes it difficult for them to success in their studies. In addition, many of these people are heads of households, which means that they have to work to support their families in economic terms. For all this, many of them have academic deficiencies, especially in Catalan and English, both languages essential for the success of both training and employment of these people.

 

In addition, the project plans to work with the general population to overcome prejudices and stereotypes towards the Gypsy People, since we still suffer from Anti-Gypsyism today (Generalitat de Catalunya, 2020)

Activities:  

  • Activity 1: Talks of Roma referents in schools where there are Roma students to motivate them and eliminate prejudices.

  • Activity 4: General information and support for enrollment in degrees and applications for public aid/scholarships for students.

RomExit 22. Towards the academic excellence of the Roma People.

Department of Social Rights (Generalitat de Catalunya)

Subsidies to entities for programs of general interest, in charge of the tax allocation of 0.7 of personal income tax, in the field of social policies (Call 2022)

Grant Line: H Gypsy people.

Eligible action: H2 Socio-labour and educational insertion actions aimed at the Roma population

 

Duration: 01-01-2022 to 12-31-2022 (12 months)

 

Stake: Coordinating entity

 

Budget: 25,431.10€

Description:      

Given the worrying data in the field of education and the Roma people, the eligible action aims to work within the framework of the Comprehensive Plan for the Roma People 2017-2020 using the Successful Educational Actions, which are actions that are supported by scientific research and that give the best results. For this reason, this project will work on Family Training and the extension of learning time, since we know that this type of training not only improves the academic skills of those being trained, but also has a multiplier effect in the community.
 

On the one hand, specific courses will be carried out, such as a course to prepare for the exam to obtain the C1 level certificate in Catalan. a course to prepare for the exam to obtain the B2 level certificate in English, among others.

 

As many of the beneficiaries of the project are people who have passed university access for those over 25, they are people who, between work, family and university, have a fairly difficult time available, for this reason, the classes will be held carried out at times that benefit the beneficiaries. From the experience in other types of training and support that we have already carried out with them, we know that the best time for these people is from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. or from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

 

In addition, in this project, support actions will continue to be carried out for Roma university students, for students of the course for access to the university of the Comprehensive Plan for the Roma People and for students of the course for obtaining the school graduate . For this reason, the coordinator will create and manage a group of volunteers who will carry out this reinforcement so that these courses are as successful as possible.

Activities:  

  • Activity 1: Specific courses to improve key skills (English, Catalan, mathematics...)

  • Activity 2: Support for university access.

  • Activity 3: Support for obtaining the graduate.

  • Activity 4: Support for university students.

 

Targets: 

General objective:

Improve the academic and employment situation of the gypsy people in Catalonia.

Specific objectives:

  • Specific objective 1: Improve the level of Catalan and English of the beneficiaries of the project.

  • Specific objective 2: To ensure that Roma/university students finish their academic year successfully.

  • Specific objective 3: To ensure that the students of the university access course for those over 25 and 45 successfully pass the test.

  • Specific objective 4: Get the students of the course to obtain the school graduate to achieve the certificate.

The ReferentsRoma22 project understands that education is one of the best formulas to combat discrimination and inequalities and, taking into account the strength of the media today, addressing both issues will achieve very positive results and will arouse interest within certain segments of the population.
