The project “Romani Ambassadors” is developed in synergy between the partners from 8 different EU countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Czech Republic, Albania, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Romania). The partnership was planned between the partners during their work in the JUSTICE funded project named “Fighting discrimination and Anti-Gypsyism in education and employment in EU” (“PAL” JUST/2014/R015/AG/DISC/8115) and consists also of new entities that are familiar with the Romani community and have a multi-annual experience in adult and VET training.
