In 2018, Roma Education Fund committed €6.54 million through direct granting to Roma organizations; implementation of projects related to boosting educational opportunities of Roma children and youth; and the provision of scholarship schemes for tertiary education beneficiaries.
The total number of REF beneficiaries in 2018 was 9,928 Roma individuals (4,664 female and 4,380 male) from all education levels. Additionally, 577 mentors and tutors have provided our beneficiaries with study-related tutorship and coaching.
REF has strengthened its activities in research, advocacy and visibility, embarking on developing into a resource, competence and advocacy center in its mission to close the gap in educational outcomes between Roma and non-Roma.
