REF Launches Rising to the Top – Stories from the Roma Education Movement

Education. We say it all the time at the Roma Education Fund. But what do we mean by education? And why do we stress the value of participating in education to Roma families and communities? Are our values shared by others?

We decided to investigate what some of the Roma education movement's resilient personalities had to say about their education journeys and the tips they had for others. On the occasion of the opening of the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture, REF interviewed a group of Romani activists, academics and artists who strongly believe in the power of eduation to transform their own lives as well as the lives of others.

We urge you to watch Rising to the Top and listen to what these leaders and practitioners in their respective fields have to say about education, how they managed to negotiate the obstacles faced by many Romani families, how education impacted them and how it can change the lives of everyone.

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for more from Rising to the Top!
