Roma people are the largest ethnic minority in the European Union (EU) and among the most deprived, facing social exclusion, discrimination and unequal access to employment, education, housing and health.
RARE project aims to enhance the capacities and cooperation among actors in the labour market. Our message is Roma people are economic potential for Europe. 8 countries, 21 organizations are working together to change the practises and discourses. We belive we can break the ice and threw a stone into still water.
