EUJS supports Jewish leadership project to help Hungary's Roma community

EUJS supports Jewish leadership project to help Hungary's Roma community

The struggles of the Roma people are many. As well as being the last minority in Europe against whom it is political and socially acceptable to discriminate, they are largely segregated and often regarded as a "problem". Together with a high proverty and crime rate there are no recognisable leaders of whom can represent the community and negocitate for change.

Through the MORE project, EUJS actively address these issues by proving hands-on training to those who work with the Roma in order to establish better organisation and high quality leaders within their community. This training, given in a small village in the northeast of Budapest, seeks to create a Roma youth organisation that will, in the long run, strengthen their capacity for self-organisation, build advocacy skills, and establish connections between Roma and Jewish youth.
