Policy Center for Roma & Minorities

Network Member

Roma exclusion in Romania has been perpetuated over generations. Inadequate education and healthcare coupled with the lack of employment opportunities means there is little chance of escaping poverty in Roma communities.

 

Policy Center for Roma and Minorities (PCRM), established in 2008 in Romania, uses football to advance the social inclusion of Roma and other ethnic minorities and mobilises people to become active citizens of their society.

 

PCRM has created the Alternative Education Club, establishing a safe space for children living in neighbourhoods susceptible to trafficking, prostitution, and extreme poverty. Participants receive counselling and guidance with the aim of strengthening community ties through sport and football.

 

The work of PCRM supports the Roma minority and other ethnic groups to become active citizens of society and stimulate the majority to actively participate in the social inclusion process.
