Roma Early Learning Challenge

In the UK, Roma children have the lowest school attainment.
In 2010, the DfE recorded only 8.3% of young 'Gypsy/Roma' were passing 5 GCSE exams at grades A-C.
Despite the fact that there are at least 200,000 Roma living in the UK, there is a distinct lack of support for Roma children and their parents to enable them to fulfil their potential.
The Roma Support Group has recently been awarded a grant by the Roma Early Learning Programme of the Open Society Foundation, to implement the Roma Early Childhood Education Programme.
Amongst other aims, the project will develop early years education provision to create a positive foundation for learning, ensuring continued achievement for Roma young children, which is inline with their non-Roma peers.
However, to receive the funding we must raise an additional £180,000 by 1st December.

Donations of all sizes are gratefully received, however if you would like to make a donation of £250 or greater we are willing to return your donation should the target not be hit. If you are interested in this option, please contact our treasurer - treasurer@romasupportgroup.org.uk

Please note that we are unable to return smaller donations should the target not be met, but in these circumstances any funds received will be used, where possible, on our other education projects.

I worked with Roma and Gypsy communitiesfor many years and really admire the work you are doing. I also know the problems with constant fundraising to keep up the good work. So good luck and I wish you well

This is the most important online cause tI have ever supported. It will put community members in the driving seat to make sure Roma children can get the most out of our common educational system.
