How to Donate to the Roma Education Fund

The Roma Education Fund (REF) has been supporting Romani children’s rights to quality, inclusive education since 2005. Working across the region to close the gap in educational achievements between Roma and non-Roma, the Roma Education Fund has reached out to over 150,000 beneficiaries through its tailored projects and programs that target all aspects of formal education – from early childhood development to parenting, from after-school tutoring to university scholarships.

Our best desegregation programs have been featured in some of the most rigorous educational forums in Europe and we advocate that all European states implement the proven models that we have developed in less than a decade working in some of Europe’s most disadvantaged communities. Our Romani staff’s unique knowledge base enables REF to diagnose problems, design solutions, find consensus, and convince communities that investing in education now is a smart investment.

We believe that everyone has a role to play in supporting children and youth in their education and development. We encourage governments, corporations, philanthropies, and local communities to support policies and invest in programs that help Romani children to get the best start in life and enable them to successfully continue and complete their educational careers.
