Teaching Literacy to Adult Roma People in Mali Leskovac Settlement
9 students of Faculty of Philology, Faculty of Political Sciences and the Faculty of Drama Arts, who were previously involved in the CI project "Teaching Literacy to Adult Roma People", met with participants from Mali Leskovac, a settlement in Belgrade municipality Palilula.
28 adult Roma men and women expressed their interest to attend the course twice a week for the next 6 month. After the learning part is over, students will meet the participants for two month more in order to repeat all the knowledge acquired during the project.
Civic Initiatives are implementing this project which is supported by the International Women's Club which has also provided scholarships for the engaged students.
The same CI project, supported by the city of Belgrade, has given excellent results in five settlements of displaced Roma on the outskirts of Belgrade, where 15 students taught literacy to 43 adult Roma people. More in Serbian...
