Cooperation and Consulting

In 2013 and 2014, we carried out non-public research requested by The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB). The purpose of the research was to identify the most active Slovak organizations working in the field of Roma inclusion and evaluate their capacity, competence, effectiveness and ability to maintain long-term sustainability of their projects. The Project also focused on the results achieved in the area of Roma inclusion at both local and regional level between the years 2007 and 2013. It assessed the Bank´s possibilities to support the inclusion of Roma in Slovakia, especially in relation to drawing the EU funds in the Programming period for the years 2014-2020.

For the internal purposes of the Roma Education Fund (REF), in 2013 and 2014, we collected detailed data in the area of education of Roma students from pre-school to secondary school. The information served as support data for extending the REF activities in Slovakia. The collection of data was realized in seven localities in which ETP ran its Community Centres: Košice-Šaca, Veľká Ida, Rankovce, Moldava nad Bodvou, Krompachy, Ostrovany and Spišské Podhradie. Based on the collection of data, REF provided to ETP a grant for the project Slovakia´s New Generation, whose activities were carried out in four Municipalities: Košice-Šaca, Veľká Ida, Rankovce and Moldava nad Bodvou.

Our social innovation – the project of self-help construction of family homes owned by the builders was, upon the request of the Carpathian Foundation, presented to the participants of an international project.
