Help Arete EMPOWER young Roma girls to reach their high potential!


"Women and girls are particularly vulnerable to social exclusion, discrimination, violence and poverty. This is especially true for women and girls from Roma groups, who continue to face significant negative attitudes and discrimination throughout the region" CARE International

We are kindly asking you to make a tax-deductible gift today to support our National Roma Girls Camps (NRGC). The NRGC will be organized for the first time in 2014 if we are successful in our fundraising efforts. The curriculum for the camps has been built on over 12 years experience organizing and executing our successful Roma leadership camps.

Your generous donation will allow 25 Roma girls ages 16-21, limited by social and economic barriers, an opportunity to unlock their potential in a safe and engaging environment with access to role models, motivational workshops and like-minded peers. The goals of the camp are to:

  • create motivated, engaged citizenship and positive role models;
  • develop communication and leadership skills;
  • increase the percentage of Roma female students who pursue higher education;
  • strengthen inclusion of Roma women in the labor market.

Our programs and team are largely funded by the Trust for Social Achievement. However, we require the support from generous donors, sponsors and other civic organizations in order to diversify our resources, increase awareness of our programs and strengthen our initiatives.
