Families living in poverty cannot afford higher education for their children, and yet most young people desperately want the chance to go to school. They want the dignity of having a job, earning a wage and supporting their families.
We believe investing in education is the single most effective way to reduce poverty and inequality and protect at-risk youth, especially young girls.
The illiteracy rate in most Gypsy communities is 95%. Neither their culture nor the government schools encourage education for these children. HART, in partnership with local churches, has started five schools for Gypsy children who demonstrate a desire to learn. YOUR SUPPORT of this project will change lives and it will transform Gypsy communities.
