Redefining Narratives – Empowering Roma Women in Bulgaria
The people in LARGO are also behind the “I Have a Dream” project funded by Active Citizens Fund Bulgaria. It is designed in partnership with Norwegian organisation KUN, aiming at female Romani empowerment. When asked about the overall project goal, an inspiring young volunteer named Ani noted that it is to:
“show the girls here that they can be more than just good wives and good mothers”
It is crucial to empower Roma women, considering the obstacles they face in accessing education and employment opportunities. By combining empowerment with accessible healthcare and social services, a more equitable and inclusive society can take shape.
