Our work in education[editar]

Since the creation of the FSG, one of its priorities, and hence strategic line of action, has been the educational promotion of the Roma community at all levels and at all ages, placing a particular emphasis on the most difficult stages of formal schooling, including secondary education.

To this purpose, the FSG implements actions in collaboration with various administrations and organisations of local, provincial or regional scope both with the Spanish or immigrant Roma population, the latter coming primarily from Eastern Europe.
