Description: 

This project focuses on sharing good-practice and collaboration to improve integration and achievement for Gypsy-Roma students in the UK, Spain and Slovakia and builds on links forged and knowledge gained through a previous Erasmus + project 'Right to Roma'. It is a statistical fact that only a minority of Gypsy-Roma students continue to further and higher education and this is partly due to discrimination and the lack of aspiration for and by the Gypsy-Roma community. This project aims to bring together organizations that are all working to improve outcomes and aspirations of Gypsy-Roma at different stages and in different contexts, so that they can learn from each other about initiatives that work, and also to improve the provision provided in each country and across Europe.

Participation: Coordinating entity

 

Budget: € 34,040.00

Description:     

The IT4ALL project aims to improve the digital skills of the most vulnerable groups, in order to fight against social exclusion and improve their personal and social development. IT4ALL is aligned with the mission of CampusRom and Ágora, which work in defense of human rights and for the education of disadvantaged groups, such as the Roma people or the immigrant population, to improve their educational, employment and social inclusion situation. In addition, Ágora does ICT training with interactive groups.
 

COVID19 has revealed and increased the social and digital gap of the most disadvantaged groups, especially immigrants, cultural minorities and groups with a low socioeconomic level. They have not been able to have access to social assistance, training or verified information, as a result of their deficiencies in digital skills since everything is done online. The pandemic has caused many of these people to lose their jobs, so they need to be incorporated into training processes.
 

The it4all project will be coordinated by the CampusRom Network, with the collaboration of the Ágora Association. CampusRom will be the managing entity in charge of creating an intercultural network of 16 trainers in digital skills (IT4ALL Network) and of coordinating, managing and disseminating all the activities and results of the project. Ágora will design an intercultural training in digital skills. Both organizations will be responsible for developing the training in the Territories.

RomExit21. Towards the academic excellence of the Gypsy People

Grant line: Generalitat de Catalunya & Ajuntament de Barcelona

Eligible action: H.2 Socio-labor and educational insertion actions aimed at the gypsy population & General call for subsidies for projects, activitats and services of districts and cities per a l'any 2021. Xb11 program

Duration: 01/01/2021 to 06/30/2022 (18 months)

Participation:  Coordinating entity

Budget:  € 35,367.84

Description: 

It is recognizable that the gypsy people suffer enormous discrimination in the educational field, of the almost a million gypsies and gypsies estimated to live in Spain (Ministry of Health. Social Services and Equality, 2012), only 1% have managed to finish university studies (Ministry of Health. Social Policy and Igualad, 2011), while almost 35% of the rest of the population have higher education (INE, 2017). This huge educational gap is also observed during compulsory education. Only 30% of Roma students obtain a secondary education degree, when 60% of non-Roma students successfully pass 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 per tal project to alleviate this situation of inequality experienced by the Roma 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 to succeed. in their studies. In addition, many of these people are heads of the family, which implies that they have to work to support their families in economic terms. For all this, many of them have academic difficulties, especially in Catalan and English, both of which are essential languages for both educational and work success of these people.

Many of these gypsies do not have a sufficient level of Catalan (C1) Because they did not obtain a school degree in their day and despite being in university, they lack this very important certificate to work in many of the Areas in which they They want to choose.
 
On the other hand, the level of English of these people is also very low, practically nil, and in the academic field this language is essential since it is the one most used in academic and political work ... for this we consider achievement necessary at least level B2 of English.

For all this, CampusRom would like to continue with the support that it has been doing on a voluntary basis until now and also start the courses to obtain the C1 in Catalan and the B1 in English.

Improving the social and educational level of Roma families, both Roma children and their parents, in order to combat social exclusion and poverty suffered by this community, is currently one of the main objectives of all plans in favor of the gypsy community. Despite all these political efforts, not all these policies are achieving social impact. An example of successful public policy will be the case of the Pla Integral del Poble Gitano in Catalonia, which is managing to break the circles of exclusion and poverty that affect a large part of the Roma community, helping us to access university and improve our employability and our academic training, and / or obtain real job opportunities, among others (García, Santiago & Algar)
