Early Inclusion: Young Roma Children and Women in the EU

Commitment by

Bernard Van Leer Foundation

In 2012, the Bernard van Leer Foundation committed to invest in capacity building, community centers, and advocacy efforts for Roma women and young children in four European Union countries. Recognizing that the Roma people are Europe's largest ethnic minority and one that faces persistent prejudice, this commitment will ensure that young Roma children and mothers have access to integrated support services and basic amenities as well as the support needed to facilitate their empowerment and participation. By using community centers as demonstration projects, this commitment will offer best practice examples for other countries and aid in the alleviation of the extreme poverty and social exclusion faced by Roma people across Europe.
