Ocjena žirija

One of the “Agents of Equality“ declared that the issue at stake is equality between women and men, between Roma and non-Roma – actually between everyone – it’s about equality full stop. To start with women in minority communities who are generally disadvantaged assures maximum leverage. For everybody. Self-assurance is learnt more easily in an innovative context. And it very obviously brings joy. The effect? For the first four classes, children of the child development groups are no longer relegated to special schools automatically, without testing. The Roma community and especially the Romnija have become much more visible for everyone. Change comes from inside. On a voluntary basis – that is a principle.
