From 9th to 13th of July, NRC’s according to the planned activities for implementation of the project The key is our hands, campaign for education of the Roma visited the 11 targeted cities in R. Macedonia: Stip, Kocani, Kriva Palanka, Skopje, Veles, Vinica, Prilep, Bitola, Kumanovo, Tetovo and Kavadarci.The visitations were made by the coordinator of the project, the technical assistant and the field motivator.
During the visit together with the mediators we registered many problems with which the Roma field mediators faced. We also realized several visits of Roma families who we at the same time interviewed.
Besides the information that in the last period we done a lot of work on this issue, we noticed that there is an urgent need for more essential approach towards this issue. The field work of the mediators in coordination with NRC and other NGOs will continue further to encourage, motivate and include children in the educational system.
