    PARTNERS - Czech Republic - Life Together

    Life Together is an NGO that grew out of volunteer efforts to overcome the aftermaths of the serious 1997 floods which left behind a torn social-fabric of Czech-Roma relations in the town of Ostrava. Life Together is a Czech-Roma organisation with 53 employees, about half Roma and half Czechs. Life Together carries out several grass-roots projects in the Roma neighbourhoods in the town- including field social work, advise centre, training programmes for mothers/parents to be empowered to support their children at school, support for adult Roma (to complete secondary schooling and find employment), Roma Community Centres (leisure activities for children, youth and adults), confidence building projects (to change police-Roma distrust, bring the police to provide equal treatment to all victims of crime irrespective of their ethnicity, to improve prison conditions), human rights work (to end the segregated schooling Roma children, to obtain apologies and compensation for the Roma women who are victims of coercive sterilization, to bring an end to the excessive removal of children from their parents to institutional care for the sole reason of poverty, to stop the municipal deportations of Roma families to other localities. This day-to-day contact with the socially marginalised Roma is our primary competence and asset that we bring to the project.
    Life Together has substantial experience of participating in EU funded initiatives, including trans-national ones - in the last five years it has managed 6 UE funded projects.

    Role of Life Together in the CVE project

    Life Together will be the leading partner of Testing CVE concept, based on its experience of experimenting with various motivation mechanisms in adult education of Roma population in the Czech Republic and the knowledge of social challenges involved. It will also organise a Grundtvig course presenting the new methodology, with help from Grodzki Theatre who will supervise the recruitment for both Grundtvig courses. It will contribute to other WPs, especially to the development of CVE concept and exploitation of results. >>>
