Event description

Description

Join Roma Learning to Fly on October 12, 2017 as we celebrate 6 years of community transformation among Roma (Gypsy) communities in Europe. Since 2011 we have provided opportunity through education and created awareness through advocacy by working alongside Roma parents as they help their children experience success in education.

In the nation of Slovakia, Roma make up 8% of the population but over 60% of children housed in special schools or classes. With unemployment among the Roma reaching 90%, quality education is essential to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness.The result of our Discover Parent Seminars is children able to enter, compete and succeed in school.

Once again this year we will take time to share the stories of these families. In addition, Igor Laslofi, our Slovak director will share his journey from hatred for the Roma to committed advocate for them.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. There is no cost for the event but an opportunity for you to invest in the lives of Roma families will be presented.

Space is limited and RSVP is highly encouraged. The RSVP deadline is Friday, October 8, 2017.
