Our program has long supported the education of Romani college and secondary school students. 

This academic year the scholarship program is supporting 86 Romani students from all over the Czech Republic. 

What is this project about?
We want more educated Romani people. 
We want Romani people to acquire qualified employment.
We want Romani people to extricate themselves from the vicious circle of poverty.

This is not just about scholarships, but about a comprehensive program of support for students who, in addition to direct financial aid, are able to acquire a mentor, to pay for a specific educational course, to complete an internship at a business, to meet other Romani students from all over the Czech Republic during motivational weekends, and to voluntarily assist Romani organizations with their work. It makes sense.  

From this fundraising drive, 50 % of the funds will be used as scholarship support for Romani students of higher vocational and secondary schools next school year. The scholarship for one secondary school student is in the amount of CZK 14 000 annually, and for a higher vocational school student it is CZK 21 000 annually. Students can also draw on financial support for tutoring, mentoring, and other education outside of school in a total amount of CZK 13 000 annually.
More details about the program and its conditions can be found at www.romskastipendia.cz.

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.
