We exist since 2008, and since the start, we have been implementing education programs and empowerment of the most vulnerable groups in Roma community: women and children. Our activities are focused on education, healthcare, gender equality, housing, environment and political participation.

We are proud of our work with children – specially girls. We encourage them to continue education and to strengthen their talents and qualities while doing so. Our workshops provide information to Roma girls and boys about affirmative measures, stipends and opportunities to enroll in high schools and universities.

Our children participated in numerous theater shows that drew crowd from the entire Aleksinac. Ugly Duckling and Pengu’s Fairytale were the most popular.

We teach children about the ecology and we have organized river cleanup – Spring Cleaning of Aleksinac, Planetize – recycle, and Let’s Clean Serbia!

We are for creation of the Local Action Plan for Improvement of Roma Women’s Status, together with Women Space from Niš and Ternipe from Pirot, since gender equality holds a special place for us.

We motivate and inform locals about the importance of the political participation. We held a series of workshops on the topic during the National Council of Roma National Minority election, together with other groups from Roma Women’s Network.
