THE FSG, THROUGH ITS SUBSIDIARY THE FUNDATIA SECRETARIATUL ROMILOR (FSR), WILL IMPLEMENT THE PROMOCIONA PROGRAMME IN ROMANIA

On 27-29 August 2013, a training session run by the teams of the Education and International departments took place at the headquarters of the FSG in Madrid to transfer the Promociona programme to Romania.

TRANSFERRING THE "PROMOCIONA" PROGRAMME TO ROMANIA

The Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG), through its subsidiary in Romania, the Fundatia Secretariatul Romilor (FSR), will implement the Promociona program as a pilot project in 3 communities of southern Romania, specifically in the area of Prahova (the city of Boldesti-Scaieni and the villages of Cotofenesti and Poiana Varbilau in the locality of Varbilau).

A training session run by the teams of the Education and International departments therefore took place on 27-29 August 2013, at the headquarters of the FSG in Madrid to transfer the Promociona programme to Romania.

The objective of this session was to support Romanian professionals, namely the FSR Coordinator, two Educational Counselors, two Teachers of the Promociona classroom, two Directors of the colleges where the project will be developed, as well as representatives of the PACT foundation (project partner), to deepen their methodological knowledge of the Promociona programme and obtain the necessary tools to begin developing their respective functions.

The Romanian professionals expressed great satisfaction with the training received, and highlighted the innovative character of the proposed model in the Romanian context, especially in relation to the profile of Promociona students.

The project, with funding from the Swiss Fund (Swiss-Romanian Cooperation Programme, Thematic Fund for Civil Society Participation - Grant Scheme for NGOs), will run for 12 months, during the academic year 2013-2014 with a budget of 77,910 CHF (about 63,000 Euros).

The FSG, in its role as transnational partner of the project, will transfer and guide the implementation of the Promociona model in a very different context from Spain. As an innovative element, the project's partner in Romania is the Fundatia PACT, which will be in charge of community development in the 3 localities, through the creation of local initiatives as well as Aflatoun clubs that will support educational activities.
