De-mystifying the Roma community...

Alexandra, our Roma Community Development Worker, hosted a presentation yesterday to highlight some of the cultural differences experienced by the Roma community.

It was a well attended event, with a variety of different partners who work with the Roma community attending, who were interested to learn and understand more about this community.

Alexandra's presentation was very interactive and engaging  as well as being very passionate.  It allowed Alexandra to quash some of the myths about the Roma people and allowed us all to ask a variety questions to aid our understanding of the differences in cultures .

Part of the presentation was a short film to help us to understand the impact that the Romanian history has on the present day Roma people. Which you can watch here ...
