Roma: Housing, Opportunities, Mobilisation and Empowerment (R-home) 2019-2021

The objectives of the R-HOME project are to reduce discrimination affecting Roma people with a particular focus on access to housing. It aims to support Roma integration through empowerment, the promotion and support of their active participation, capacity building and development of Roma and pro-Roma civil society. In order to support these aims we carry out background researches and collect and analyze best practices.
The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020)funded by DG Justice and Consumers, and is led by Fondazione Caritas Ambrosiana, Italy.
