Description of the hosting organization
„Amaro Drom” is an intercultural self-organization of young Roma and non-Roma . Our main focus is the socio-cultural youth work, the strengthening of self-initiative, mobilization, networking and self-esteem of young Roma and their political and social participation. As young Europeans we actively want to contribute to society for more acceptance and respect, mutual understanding and inclusion. We are members of ternYpe International Roma Youth Network and of Phiren Amenca, a network of Roma and non-Roma volunteers and voluntary service organizations creating opportunities for non-formal education, dialogue and engagement, in order to
