Residents of marginalized Roma communities have difficult conditions for integration into social life in the city of Lučenec from the point of view of belonging to their ethnicity. With successive steps, the city tries to reduce the barriers between the majority and the residents of MRK and, together with community workers, maps their needs and leads them to more effective integration, motivates them to cooperate and enables positive change. Whether it is the support of children’s education, the control of their school attendance, as well as the education of adults – from the point of view of financial literacy, the ability to take care of one’s needs and the needs of the family, prevention of addiction and crime, professional intervention in case of addiction. It reduces differences and feelings of isolation and leads to adaptation to living conditions, while at the same time integrating them into normal life without “labeling”.
The aim of the proposed project is to improve the position of marginalized Roma communities and their opportunities in society by implementing cost-effective and sustainable integration of four areas: education, employment, housing and prevention of discrimination. Thanks to the project, a network and strategic partnerships are created in the targeted marginalized Roma communities between the applicant, project partners and cooperating entities at multiple levels. The project includes the support of 5 existing service centers in marginalized Roma communities, while the services provided to the Roma community are innovative and at the same time already important activities of the partners, diverse and focused and affecting different target groups of Roma. Participate in the project within each participation event. Roma field social workers and community workers – both current and new – will be involved in the day-to-day implementation of the project.

Since 1994, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, as non-EU member states, have been providing financial contributions to those EU countries whose gross domestic product per capita is lower than 90% of the EU average through the EEA and Norway Grants. In the program period 2014-2021, there are 15 of these countries. On the other hand, these contributing states are allowed the free movement of goods, capital, services and people within all EU member countries. The main goal of the EEA and Norway Grants is to contribute to reducing economic and social differences within the European Economic Area (EEA) and to strengthening cooperation between contributing (donor) and recipient states. The implemented projects are financed from two mechanisms – the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. The Slovak state budget contributes 15% to the financing. The Slovak Republic has been a recipient country since 2004, when it became a member of the European Union and thus part of the European Economic Area.
