Integration of Roma communities through economic initiatives

Project aims to reduce unemployment among Roma communities in predominantly rural areas of the country through the implementation of a model that combines raising skills for farming and entrepreneurship with financial support for Roma families.

Model has been successfully developed and implemented in the region of Plovdiv by the "Earth - source of income" Foundation.

The main objective of the project is to support the Roma families to create income and employment.

In 2012, Organization Drom successfully funded a Roma family from Bregovo, starting with the purchase of agricultural land and strawberries plantations.
