Detstvo deťom
Parental Center – Early intervention support center

Main aim and activites:

The project, within the relevant Roma community, focuses on the support of early care and parenting education, which is one of the most neglected areas for this vulnerable group. The development of children in marginalized Roma communities is negatively affected by their living conditions. The period of the first few years in a child’s life is crucial. The aim of this project is to continue activities oriented at working directly with babies from birth, toddlers, infants and preschoolers and their mothers directly in families at home through the active participation of mentors – mothers directly from the local community. The benefit of the project is the employment of two women/mothers from the community.

Project Omama – early care for children from excluded Roma communities

Main aim and activites:

“If you are born into extreme poverty, very likely you will be wrong to thrive in school and then you have little chance to successfully being applied in working life”, is the main point of the project promoters. In Slovakia, this problem is one of the crucial problems in connection with the excluded Roma communities. Touches tens of thousands of people, primarily children, who do not receive adequate care, education and literacy in pre-school age. Many times it also happens that children from poor environments do not get into kindergarten, thereby again losing many of the skills.
