On October 4, 2018 we assisted our partner Karpatska nadácia (the Carpathian Foundation in Slovakia) in organizing a workshop on the importance of early childhood development (ECD).
The aim of the event held in Kosice was to prepare the participating civic Roma and pro-Roma organizations (NGOs) from Slovakia for launching successful local development projects in their home country to support early childhood development.
28 representatives from 19 organizations attended the event and after the lectures, the participating NGOs from Slovakia could jointly plan the next year’s proposed projects for the programme.
From Hungary, Dr. Zsombor Farkas (Assistant professor, Department of Social Work of ELTE – Faculty of Social Sciences); Éva Szomor (Consultant at Berlin Brandenburg International School); and Ágnes Kóka (Chairperson of the ’Add a Kezed’ Association, Nyíregyháza) gave lectures to the the participants. Hereby, we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions.
This event and co-operation were implemented within the framework of our programme called ’Building Capacities for Effective Early Childhood Development of Marginalized Roma in Hungary’ .
