On 4 December 2021, the 1st Hungarian Roma Women’s Gathering took place in Pécsvárad, aiming to give women a safe space to talk about the burdens they face in their everyday lives.
20 women and their children participated in the meeting. With their active engagement, we were able to close a dynamic and fruitful meeting. Important issues were discussed , solutions sought and recommendations made for : – The impact of online learning, – Conscious family planning, educational opportunities for children removed from families – Housing subsidy critical systems . These topics play an active role in their daily lives and are closely interlinked, so we provide a platform for experts on these topics to talk and try to find some solution to communicate to policy makers.
