Romni Onlus

Association Romni Onlus - Rome

Our association was born in 2010 in Rome. It unites women proud of their ethnicity and culture, but determined to promote their integration in the Italian society. Our ambition is to organize activities and projects that can help the process of women emancipation and of social inclusion in modern life. We want our communities to abandon the practices that limit the individual dignity and emancipation. Our objective is the schooling of girls and boys and training of adolescents and adults, women and men. We believe that social exclusion can be fought through education. The decision to form the association was born from the growing uneasiness developed within the Roma communities following the racist media campaign that has been persecuting us for years. Many of our members are young women who live in “camps”, have no work and a very low level of education. The association is strongly characterized as women’s association because our principal actions have as protagonists mostly women and girls from different Roma communities. We try to share knowledge and competences, to create and support opportunities for work and cultural activities. Beneficiaries and promoters of our actions are Roma families living in “camps”, involved directly in every phase of all our activities.
