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.

Roma families get involved: transnational methodology for working with Roma families towards their children’s success in education

The aim of this project, established by Fundación Secretariado Gitano, is to reduce
early dropout rates amongst Gitanos (Spanish Roma), by working with them and
their families. Involving families in their children’s education is the key to their
educational success. It is therefore essential to raise awareness amongst Roma
families to the consequences of early school leaving for their children’s future
development and prospects.

The project sets up a transnational platform for the exchange of knowledge and
experience amongst education professionals working with Roma, with a view to
improve and refine their understanding of the practices and culture of young Roma
in education. Tools are identified or elaborated to assist professionals in facilitating
the engagement of Roma families in their children’s education. Methodological tools
will be made available in five EU languages for greater dissemination amongst
professionals involved in Roma education.
