Our program has long supported the education of Romani college and secondary school students.
We want more educated Romani people.

At the same time, we are responding to the current wave of racism that is spreading through the Czech Republic. The impulse was the recent hateful verbal attacks made against the first-grade class at a primary school in Teplice because of the children’s appearance and ethnicities. We have decided to donate 50 % of our current fundraising drive to that school. Some of our financial support will be used for necessary equipment and educational materials for the first-grade class as the school administration determines necessary. We will also support pupils in the 9th grade of that school by aiding them with preparing for their entrance examinations to high school, irrespective of nationality.
“On behalf of all the pupils, their parents, and the entire school, I thank the organizers of this campaign for deciding to donate part of the funds raised to the needs of our pupils attending grades 1 through 9. We are glad the aid is being offered to these children and we greatly appreciate such a helpful attitude,” said Marcela Prokůpková, director of the Primary School with Expanded Instruction in Computer and Information Technology in Teplice, Czech Republic.
