In late October 2014, the Roma Education Fund (REF) Romania organized two training courses to improve the skills of 240 people who will actively be involved in the prevention and remedy of early school leaving by young Roma pupils currently living in the Central, North East and South Muntenia regions of Romania.
The Roma Education Fund's Strategy Paper and Business Plan for 2015-2020 was developed by REF's senior managers in consultation with REF's Board last year. Approved in November 2014 by REF's Board, these documents will shape and guide how REF focuses on its mission in the next operational period, 2015-2020, with its commensurate mid- and long-term goals and the strategic directions for achieving them.
The Summer School (June 29-July 10, 2015) will focus on the nexus between Romani studies and performance, with special attention paid to questions of visual culture and representation. The disquiet around increasing violence against and marginalization of Roma across Europe lends this course a special urgency. The course will focus particularly on the enduring hierarchies, exclusions and stereotypes that Romani communities and individual citizens face in everyday life and in multiple sites and structures of the nation-state.
The Roma Education Fund was honored on December 13, 2014 with an invitation to join Forbes Hungary as the first charity guest of their inaugural “THE BEST GALA” dinner. Forbes invited a selection of the most successful business people, celebrities and artists, as well as leading diplomatic missions in Hungary.
