We started organizing activities which support those who need help with identification documents and birth registry. We also help with kindergarten, elementary and high school enrollment. We have been actively promoting rights of Roma women in Pančevo and surrounding villages.

We support girls in their educational journey and we fight to lower drop-out rates. We succeeded in helping 3 girls escape early marriage and return back to education. About 20 Roma girls from our county entered high school.
