The Sedrin Project

Welcome to the site of the Sedrin project. A project that aims to help Roma children to complete their primary education.

We decided to tackle this problem by training the Roma women to act as intermediators between the Roma children and the school.

What's Working?

This project developed by BHA for Equality, based in the United Kingdom (Manchester
City Council) undertakes to address the various difficulties experienced by increasing
numbers of Roma migrating from Central and Eastern to Western Europe, with a
special concern for their children. It supports the development of Roma communities,
as well as individuals, as they may make informed choices and understand the value
of ‘formal education’ especially for young children and teenage girls; it further support
young people in their efforts to develop as mediators and become role models
for others and through a report it documents the potential barriers to integration,
whilst identifying solutions that are transferable to different countries and situations.
The partner agencies work to promote the inclusion and engagement of Roma communities
through the use of mediators (from the local Roma community), activities
for parents and the Roma community, teacher training, improvement in registration
levels and continued attendance in compulsory education.
