Evaluating the ‘Roma Women in Public Life’ project and strengthening sustainability of the local initiatives


In recent years, the Tom Lantos Institute organised a training series for Roma women’s organisations aimed at strengthening existing initiatives and facilitating the participation of Roma women in public life.

In 2020, our capacity-building project reached its final phase, and we will evaluate to what degree the training programme contributed to strengthening the advocacy skills of Roma women and enhancing their participation in public life. In addition, we are organising a project closing event aimed at providing an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and introduce their local initiatives to donor organisations, and to discuss different options for securing funding for their operations and project implementation.
