Phiren Amenca founding member Amaro Drom e.V. (Germany) has been awarded with the Social Human Rights Award 2013 of Eberhard Schultz Foundation for Social Human Rights and Participation. The jury voted for Amaro Drom because of its strong participatory character through its involvement of Roma youth in the concrete work. They pointed out that it is an outstanding achievement for a young organization to work from a marginalized position for equal participation and to be recognized for its aims and values after only a few years.
