£3 a month will help transform access to education in the poorest communities in Southeast Europe.
Hundreds of thousands of children suffer extreme poverty in Southeast Europe, with the majority living in Roma communities, where prostitution and criminal exploitation are rife. These communities are often cut-off from the world outside by language, discrimination and lack of services. One vital missing service is education – with less than 20% of Roma children in the region completing secondary school is it any wonder that these communities act like traps for those who are born and raised there?
Thousands of Roma families cannot get access to crucial kindergartens for their children. Without this the children are shut out of the school system and so condemned to a life of poverty and desperation.
