Strategija

The Roma Education Fund’s Strategy Paper for 2015-2020 was developed by REF’s senior managers last year. Approved in November 2014 by REF’s Board, this document 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 Strategy Paper illuminates how REF intends to embed effective models for inclusive Roma education through strong partnerships with national and sub-national education authorities and with substantive Roma participation. This requires intense communication throughout the process of adjusting REF’s five grant models to national and local contexts. This move from proposal-based to model-based program design and funding is a clear sign of REF’s increased accountability and ownership of the projects and their results, and will increase the capacity to expand and enhance these models.
