Reducing the gap in the completion of upper secondary and vocational education for Roma. Increasing public awareness of issues of discrimination suffered by Roma and informing employers and stakeholders about the employment prospects of Roma.


This project will inform society about the discrimination faced by the Roma community, while at the same time, it will assist in informing entrepreneurs and employers about opportunities for them to hire people from the Roma community.

This will be done through Guidebooks for VET Empowerment, which are a sustainable product. In order to motivate the VET trainers and staff, they will participate in training for trainers (ToT).
