Germany: Amaro Drom e.V.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to create a space for youngsters to become active through empowerment, mobilization and participation. We believe that any young person, no matter what socioeconomic status or family background, deserves equal opportunities to be part of our society.(more)
„Amaro Drom” is an intercultural self-organization of young Roma and non-Roma which was established in 2006. Our main focus is the socio-cultural youth work, the strengthening of self-initiative, mobilization, networking and self-esteem of young Roma and their politicial and societal participation. The consciousness about their origin, culture and history, as well as about the culture and history of the country where they live, plays an important role. As young Europeans we actively want to contribute to society for more acceptance and respect, mutual understanding and inclusion (more)
Amaro Drom e.V. brings together independent, self-organized regional youth organizations:
- Baden-Württemberg/Freiburg: Ushten Chavalen
- Berlin: Amaro Foro e.V.
- Nordrhein-Westfalen: Terno Drom e.V.
Terne Sinti & Roma in Germany - National Youth Networking
How can we create an open space for young people to become active, to exchange themselves about their voluntary engagement, to discover and reflect on their Roma identity and to fight stereotypes through their active citizenship? The national Roma youth networking intends to mobilize and empower young people as we are the ones ourselves to carry the responsibility and to decide upon our lives and our interests.
